Lorenzo Palmeri meets Francesca Lanzavecchia and Marco Marzini

Curated by Domitilla Dardi

11 designers, four seminars each lasting 100 minutes, two generations head-to-head: Design 4×100.
In each seminar an internationally recognised Italian designer will be presenting his ideas about design to the public.

Giulio Iacchetti, Odoardo Fioravanti, Lorenzo Palmeri and Silvana Angeletti and Daniele Ruzza, the leaders of the four seminars, will invite to the stage young Italian design talents to initiate an exchange of views about the meaning and methods of designing in Italy today.

Elia Mangia, Sovrappensiero and Tommaso Caldera, Gabriele Rosa, Francesca Lanzavecchia and Marco Marzini will be asked to give a brief description of their early work and directly “interviewed” by the seminar leader through an exchange of questions that will create a true dialogue between generations of designers.
