Italian Design Day in Paris: the sustainable relaunch of Made in Italy
For the Italian Design Day 2021, the ICE / ITA Paris Agency staged a parterre of exceptional speakers to discuss the theme: "Design and matter: new challenges for the sustainable relaunch of Made in Italy" (click on the right to see the video of the conversation).
The dialogue, moderated by historian and critic Cléa Daridan and preceded by institutional greetings from the Italian Ambassador to France Teresa Castaldo, was between Jean-Michel Wilmotte and Cino Zucchi, both architects, and Florent Leonet of Tecno Francia. The role of the meeting is significant: the Maison Ozenfant in Paris, a youthful work of Le Corbusier and the French headquarters of Tecno and its TClub, the co-working for design and architecture professionals created by the famous office furniture brand ( and already active in its Milan office).
Conceived in 2017 by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration and with the support of the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities, the Italian Design Day is an annual thematic event that aims to promote Italian design around the world.
