Lecture by Prof. Cabirio Cautela entitled: "Italian design, from the arts & craft masters to the meaning innovators"

June 30th at 8:30 am (PDT) / 5:30 pm (CEST)

What are the roots of Italian design? To which extent does Italian Design differ from the worldwide diffused innovation approach known as “Design Thinking”? Is there a new Italian way of design, after the advent of the Italian Design of the 60’s and 70’s?  In a less than one-hour journey, Cabirio Cautela will recall the main principles of Italian Design, connecting it to some key-principles in the “design mode” of different high pace innovating companies (as Apple, Nintendo, Vibram). In conclusion some highlights will be shown about the relationship between design and new forms of entrepreneurship.
