here’s a new exhibition at MAC (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Lima, Perù), which is open until the 11th October 2015. This exhibition honours the world of Italian design; it shows a selection of those products which have received prizes and special mentions at the XXIII edition of Compasso d’Oro ADI.
El lenguaje universal del diseño italiano (from Spanish: the universal language of Italian design)is an overview of the Compasso d’Oro award. Besides recent entries, it also shows pieces which have won prizes during the last sixty years of this Award (one for each decade since its first edition in 1954). The main purpose is: to tell the story but also to learn from the language of Italian design and its progress through time, supported by a selection of videos and clips, filmed over the years by RAI Teche.
The exhibition is part of the series of events: Anno d’Italia in America Latina (the Italian year in Latin America). Sponsored by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this series of events takes Italian design to the various regions of South America. In fact, after touching Perù, this exhibition of Italian excellence will reach Bogotà in Colombia.
In the meantime, it’s worth following the events in Lima; this includes talks with designers, researchers, design students and manufactures: Luisa Bocchietto and the designer Alex Terzariol (ADI Executive Committee), Enzo Calabrese (winner of the 2014 Compasso d'Oro with the Sampei lamp, designed for Davide Groppi), Luca Casarini (Centro Stile Ferrari of Maranello), just to name a few.
This is a chance to compare Italian and south American culture and learn about the international language of design.
Where: MAC Museo di Arte Contemporáneo, Lima Perù
