Since the 1950s, Italy has been a trendsetter and exerts a vast influence on urban, industrial, and fashion design. Architects and engineers worked closely with local craftsmen respecting a classic and artisan past. This presentation by Rosanne Martorella will include examples from architecture, furniture, and fashion. We will familiarize ourselves with the innovative designs of urban landscape, the innovative and whimsical objects as Olivetti’s typewriter and Piaggio’s Vespa, and the fashionable boutiques of Milan and Rome.
