On the occasion of Gwangju Design Biennale 2015, Triennale Design Museum presents an upgraded and updated edition of The New Italian Design from October 15th until November 13th 2015: an overview on contemporary Italian design that explains and describes the transition of the movement and its links with economic, political, and technology changes that occurred over the past Century.
Triennale Design Museum, the first museum of Italian design, is directed by Silvana Annicchiarico, and has organized this exhibition to analyze, value and promote the new Italian creativity. As a travelling exhibition, The New Italian Design was presented in Madrid (2007), Istanbul (2010) Beijing and Nantou (2012), Bilbao, San Francisco and Santiago Chile (2013), Cape Town (2014) with a great success with audience and press.
Presented for the first time in 2007, at Triennale di Milano, The New Italian Design is the result of a survey on a national scale focused on the passage from the XX to the XXI century and the substantial change in the role of the profession.
