In English. Summarized from the dj: "Issued in conjunction with a major exhibition. Over 150 objects of Italian design of the past 10 years have been selected for the show. The book contains essays by Emilio Ambasz, Curator of Design at The Museum of Modern Art and director of the exhibition, along with contributions by a number of outstanding Italian critics and art historians. Together, these comprise the first historical survey of contemporary Italian design." Catalogue from the exhibition held May 26 to Sept. 11, 1972. A fascinating look at Italian design, both visually and with articles on both historical and critical aspects. A stellar catalogue. NOTE: This is the scarce hardcover edition!
