‘Made in Italy: The Influence of Italian Design’, UK

They say that Italians do it best. And when it comes to design and architecture, we have to agree.

It seems fitting, then, that Italian beer brand Peroni Nastro Azzurro has decided to work with the Design Museum on ‘Made in Italy: The Influence of Italian Design’ – a series of talks set to take place in London, Brighton and Glasgow.

Launching on the 5th May 2010 at the Design Museum in London, each “talk will explore the values behind Italy’s creative force, looking at future trends and bringing together the world’s most exciting figures in Italian contemporary design”.

Mario Bellini who started out as an architect, and has succeeded in becoming one of the world’s finest product designers, will speak at the event. Catch an interview with Bellini at Dazed Digital here: http://www.dazeddigital.com/ArtsAndCulture/article/7320/1/Italian_Chic

Other speakers include James Irvine, Piero Lissoni, Antonio Citterio, Roberto Giolito, Claudio Silvestrin and Ross Lovegrove
