(Architettura, urbanistica e ambiente). (Arte, arredamento, disegno). Catalogue of an itinerant exhibition of a selection from among the most significant objectis in the Permanent Collection of Italian Design of the Triennale di Milano being presented in the principle cities of the world. Design in Italy, edited by Silvana Annicchiarico, is a richly illustrated of 100 objects, from the post-war period up to the present, which have marked and transformed the Italian way of life and modern culture. Ranging from the early mass-produced objects of the 1940s and 50s, through the rigorous modernism of the 60s and 70s, up to the formal experimentation of the 80s and 90s.The pieces making up the Collection are almost exclusively products of mass production and assembly lines, but some of them are already becoming "one-of-a-kind" items whose patina of time evokes intense rushes of memory and emotion; we glimpse the Vespa and the Lambretta motor scooters, the Valentine typewriter and the Grillo telephone, the Blow chair and the Tizio lamp.
