The Italian Design: Descendants of Leonardo Da Vinci
by Mario Bellini , Andrea Branzi and Bruno Munari

One of the most incredible books on Italian design of the last century, this epic, long-out-of-print volume, published in Japan in 1988, is as visually encompassing in it’s design and visual content as it is invaluable as a resource of essays and profiles on the many artists and designers working in Italy from (roughly) the 1930’s to the late 1980’s.

With texts by none other than Mario Bellini, Andrea Branzi, and Bruno Munari, this heavy volume, co-ordinated by Fumio Shimizu and Studio Matteo Thun, is broken into “The First Generation” (Carlo Alessi, Bruno Munari, Gio Ponti, Carlo Scarpa, and many others); “The Second Generation” (Mario Bellini, Aldo Rossi, Alessandro Mendini, Enzo Mari, Ettore Sottsass, and many others); “The Third Generation” (Andrea Branzi, George J. Sowden, Ugo La Pietra, Paolo Deganello, and many others); “The Fourth Generation” (Alchimia, Aldo Cibic, Michele De Lucchi, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Matteo Thun, Alessio Sarri, and many others) – all with illustrated examples of their furniture, architecture, fashion, product design, interiors, etc. and profiles on each and every featured artist and designer. The names above are only the tip of the iceberg of the many amazing practices highlighted in this book, many of which are not easily found in any other publications on the subject.

Highly recommended and very scarce.

All texts are in both English and Japanese.

“Engaging Italian industry and culture in a single-minded and spontaneous project of national image building, Italy’s designers have produced a complete variety of forms–fashion, graphic arts and product and set design–with a unique international resonance. This volume explores Italian design of the last half-century, featuring the classic lines of the Vespa, Bruno Munari’s deconstruction of the common fork, the nostalgic appeal of Italo Marchioni’s ice cream cone and the sleek Minimalism of Alberto Meda’s 1987 “Light Light Chair,” among many other masterpieces. Paola Antonelli’s lively introduction provides an overview of Italy’s design culture; an essay by Giampiero Bosoni illuminates the design objects that are superbly reproduced in the volume’s plate section.”
