Australia – Italian Design Day: Design Thinking and Innovation. Where beauty finds its place

The Italian Design Day, the event cross-fertilising design projects and exchanging ideas and insights, will continue over the years, enriching this first global reservoir of ideas and, for the city of Sydney, it will feature graphic designer Francesco Cavalli in the role of testimonial.   

On 2 March, the Italian Cultural Institute (IIC) will host a chat by Cavalli on design, innovation and beauty, illustrating how graphic design not only conveys the image of a product but also outlines its identity. The chat by Francesco Cavalli will be followed by a round table with the participation of designer Marcus Piper, digital craftsman and multidisciplinary designer known for his innovative artistic direction of the Oxygen POL magazine and for having worked for artists of the calibre of  Neville Brody, and Catriona Burgess, Strategic Director of Frost * collective, expert in branding, design e communication who, among her numerous projects, has also done the rebranding of Sydney’s Opera House and of the State Library of NSW.

The debate will be moderated by journalist Penny Craswell, the founder of The Design Writer blog. The event will be introduced by Donatella Cannova, Director of the Italian Cultural Institute in Sydney and Lisa Cahill, Director of the Australian Design Centre, a partner of the IIC for this first edition of Italian Design Day.
