How do you create an exhibition, a magazine, or a book on design?
Is there a method for being creative?
What characterises a great talent?

Four events devoted to one of the most studied and ramified contemporary disciplines. Enter the designers, critics and entrepreneurs who have marked the history of design project in the last fifty years, both in Italy and the world.

The first event will see critic and curator Beppe Finessi introduce the idea of critique as a project in order to describe how the contents of magazines, books, exhibitions, didactic activities, and research projects are developed.

Architect Beppe Finessi carries out teaching, critique, and research activities. His exhibition and editorial projects revolve around the great masters of Italian design and the new faces of the international scene. He has authored many books on design, architecture and contemporary arts.
