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’.

The event, organized in collaboration with Milano Design Film Festival and Indonesian Contemporary Art and Design, includes a calendar of four screenings, available on the MyMovies platform, starting from 5 July:

The ‘Business and Culture’ webinar will be held on 5 July, a meeting with the Italian designer Francesco Faccin and the Indonesian designer Danton Sihombing in dialogue with Maria Battaglia, director of the Italian Cultural Institute in Jakarta and Silvia Robertazzi, curator and co – founder of Milano Design Film Festival.

A journey through the places where Italian design was created, from large warehouses to industrial laboratories where objects, furnishings, finishes and everything needed to make a house a home and to make an office an office are created, and to discover the importance of specialized craftsmen such as blacksmiths, carpenters, tailors, tanners, glass-makers, potters.

The meeting is available on the Institute’s YouTube channel.
