The fact that the Made in Italy is the third most popular brand in the world after Coca Cola and Visa - as an unverified yet much quoted source on the Internet claims - speaks to the unrivaled role of Italian products in the current market as embodiments of good taste. Yet, the concept of the Made in Italy and the practices attached to it go well beyond the manufacturing, distribution and consumption of products within an economic perspective.

Join Daniele Balicco, editor of a 2016 collection of essays entitled Made in Italy and Culture, and Wava Carpenter, director of content at Pamono, an online magazine and marketplace dedicated to distinctive design objects, as they address the topic of the Made in Italy brand through a critical lens, with a focus on Italian design.

This event dedicated to design is the first appointment of a brand new series titled "Critical Made in Italy" which will address the topic of Italian food and its perception abroad on March 27, 2017.

Thursday October 13, 2016 - 6.30-8.30pm
Lecture Hall, Room 101 in the Feliciano School of Business
