In the book edited by Tonino Paris, Vincenzo Cristallo and Sabrina Lucibello,Italian from the last decade is discussed with an anthological approach organized around themes: communications, creativity, Icons, ingenuity, museums and knowledge, territories and values, visions and utopias, designers and entrepreneurs.
An expedient that permits images, words, products and people to be considered on the basis of ideas; that is to say, a thematic overview of the broad and controversial theory of Italian design, revealing its eclectic nature as the crossroads of diverse idioms.
