Adelaide Acerbi, Gio Ponti, Michele Ferrari, Tobia Scarpa are the protagonists of the film festival organized by the Italian Embassy and the Italian Institute of Jakarta on the occasion of the Italian Design Day 2021.
Four great names who made the history of Italian design in the 1900s come to life in the words and images of four directors who have decided to recount their dreams and the great feats they have accomplished to create objects and lifestyles that we now call ‘Made in Italy’.
