  • Crafting Modern Design in Italy, from Post-War to Postmodernism

Rossi, Catharine, 2012, Thesis, Crafting Modern Design in Italy, from Post-War to Postmodernism PhD thesis, The Royal College of Art.

Abstract or Description:

The years between 1945 and the early 1980s are the most celebrated in Italy’s design history. From the rhetoric of reconstruction to the postmodern provocations of the
Memphis design collective, Italy’s architects played a vital role in shaping the country’s encounter with post-war modernity. Yet as often as this story has been told, it is incomplete. Craft was vital to the realisation of post-war Italian design, and an area of intense creativity in its own right, and yet has been marginalised and excluded in design historiography.
