Celebrating Italian Design Day

On the occasion of Italian Design Day 2019 the Embassy of Italy has partnered with Point Centre for Contemporary Art to present a talk by the renowned Italian artist Massimo Catalani, part of an event linkiong 100 cities around the world.

The talk will present the artistic context and any aspects of the culture that evolved during this 21st Century in which Massimo Catalani developed his own paths. A collection of selected images will allow the public to enter into the history of some facts in the field of art, but also some that deal with civilization that have left an important mark in the last decades and discover how Catalani’s work inserts itself in this context.

The event falls under the third edition of Italian Design Day, which builds on the success of the two previous years, that have seen over 300 events held in 230 cities around the world, creating a dense network of connections between Italian and foreign architects, designers, entrepreneurs, academics and specialised journalists. On the same day, in 100 cities around the world, 100 lectures and discussions will take place simultaneously.

This year’s topic focuses on innovative and sustainable solutions to protect and enhance environmental, cultural and human resources. It is also linked with the 22nd Triennale International Exhibition (Milan, March-September 2019) Broken Nature – Design Takes on Human Survival, which explores the at times fraught relationship between humans and nature, and the role that design, architecture and art can play to rebuild it.
