SUMMARY

"The collaboration between the most eloquent, merciless and yet passionate narrator of Italian design and a photographer of intense expressionist inspiration has resulted in an unprecedented and unusual account, with photographs of psychological depth, of a story that many know in terms of its more glamorous aspects, but which still hides many truths: structural problems suffered by the Italian manufacturing system, the pioneering aspects of an economy based on family-owned companies, the complicated love affairs and sometimes betrayals between designers and manufacturers, the drawbacks of the star system, and the new role played by high finance. This book reveals for the first time the complex mechanisms, hopes, passions, successes and faces of three generations of manufacturers and designers - from Alberto Alessi to Ettore Sottsass, Bruno Danese to Riccardo Sarfatti, Roberto Poggi to Giulio Cappellini - who have made the Made in Italy products famous throughout the world."--BOOK JACKET.Dworschak, Gunda is the author of 'BACKSTAGE: THE ITALIAN DESIGN INDUSTRY: FROM THE 1', published 2008 under ISBN 9788874394418 and ISBN 8874394411.
