Triennale Design Museum proposes the exhibition: Stories. The Italian Design, scheduled from April 14 to January 20 is an overwhelming dip in the twentieth century design precisely in the years ranging from 1902 to 1998. On this trip there are the Vespa and the coffee machine of Gio Ponti, the Lambretta and the Letter 22, and again the historic bicycle Graziella and the motorbike Ciao, the Eclisse lamp by Vico Magistretti and even the "mythical" Coppa del Nonno, an ice cream cup star of Italian summer since 50s.
"180 works dating from 1902 to 1998 – most of which come from the Permanent Collection of the Triennale Design Museum – have been selected as the most representative of Italian design. The choice is based on their innovative technology and shapes, their aesthetic qualities, experimental nature, iconic appeal, and success among the public. They introduce the debate about which pieces no museum of design should ever be without and which ones can be considered as “icons” – and also if this term is actually appropriate when talking about design."
From April 14 2018 to January 20 2019
