Women in Italian Design
Publisher: Corraini Edizioni Editor: Silvana Annicchiarico ISBN: 9788875705671 Format: Softcover, 456pp, 240x310 mm
Twentieth-century Italian design was objectively and indisputably patriarchal. Design history recognises, in the best of cases, ten or so female exemplars. This ninth edition of the Trienniale Design Museum book series documents hundreds and hundreds. Women have been, and remain, a quantitatively and qualitatively significant part of Italian design that has been hidden, removed and marginalised. Women in Italian Design, edited by Silvana Annicchiarico, seeks to fill this gap, telling the tale of Italian design from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day from a different perspective.
