Italian Art & Design: discover design from Italy

From the beginning of 20th century the main purpose of new designers and architects was to promote a functional and aesthetic union between industry, the manufacturing sectors and applied arts to produce objects which should be pleasant and functional at the same time, in a new contest creating a new conception of ordinary life.
The protagonists of that time joined their forces to hit the mark. Starting from Bauhaus teaching example, they got organized in associations like ADI or institutions like the Triennale di Milano and creating one of the most important international design award called "Compasso d'Oro".
