capture press release

As of these last five years, the Italian Design Day (IDD) is back in its sixth edition! The event, promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, reaching more than 100 cities in the world, will be celebrated in Cyprus on March 23. This year’s edition will offer an online lecture, scheduled at 12 p.m. and organised by the Embassy of Italy in Nicosia in close collaboration with the Department of Architecture of the University of Nicosia.

alex terzariol 1The lecture “Which Design?” will be delivered by designer and Professor Alex Terzariol, currently head of MM Design, a strategic consultancy, operative since 1991 with a focus on industrial design. While maintaining its Italian roots, the company has gained considerable international projection, with offices in São Paulo and Singapore, and activities in Taiwan, which allows for constant challenges and ground breaking projects. Prof. Terzariol has been awarded many renewed prizes, among which the Good Design in Chicago and Tokyo, the German Design Award and the President of the Italian Republic Award for Innovation in 2012. During his career, he taught at the Istituto Europeo di Design IED in Milan and São Paulo, at the Academy of Design in Bolzano and at the University IUAV in Venice. Also, he is currently a board member of the Italian Industrial Design Association (ADI) as Delegate for International Activities.

This year, the IDD will be wedded to “Re-generation. Design and new technologies for a sustainable future”. As it emerges from the title, this approach will take into consideration the need to strike a balance between the new and the old, in an attempt to combine well-being and functionality in everyday life. For this reason, the urgency to deepen the interdisciplinary dialogue will be at the core of this event, in order to explore possible ways in which design could best tackle today’s challenges and still meet its cultural, social, and environmental responsibilities. Design is inextricably tied to reality and to its changes, which makes it a means to sustainably reconnect to our present in order to ensure a better future.
