Durant ces 50 dernières années, une grande partie d'objets artistiques, ceux qui créent des sensations et des désirs, sont venus d'Italie. C'est tout d'abord Peter Greeneway et Italo Rota, dans un dialogue entre baroque et futurisme qui ont proposé un musée/installation de l'ère de l'information visuelle. Conjuguant l'élégance avec la jubilation et l'exubérance, ils ont donné vie à un volume et à une exposition auto-réflexive, capable de faire voir la signification des objets du design dans l'ambiance originale de leur projet.

The publication Made in Italy analyses history, dynamics and future in Italian design through four aspects: aesthetics, economy, communication and project. About the first three aspects, there are contributions by Laura Biagiotti, Massimo d'Alessandro, Philippe Daverio, Peppino Ortoleva, Vanni Pasca, Andrea Piersanti, Alberto Pratesi and Maurizio Stecco. Three generations of Italian design witnesses are collected in the third section and are signed by great designers: Mario Bellini, Andrea Branzi, Carlo Colombo, Stefano Giovannoni, Enzo Mari and Alessandro Mendini. Their texts are accompanied by product images elicited by their recent Made in Italy production. The final section is formed by a wide range of Made in Italy historic images and products, chronologically ordered from 1950 to 1990.
