Intorno a Diego Birelli:
Il lavoro del graphic designer attraverso
le dinamiche professionali
tra gli anni sessanta e ottanta in Italia

+

Info:

The profile of Diego Birelli (Asti 1934 – Venezia 2011) as a graphic designer may be analysed by mapping the relationships he developed throughout his professional career. Between the sixties and the eighties, Birelli attended the Corso superiore di disegno industriale in Venice; as a militant graphic designer he took part in the political struggles led by parliamentary and extra-parliamentary left-wing parties; he interpreted the graphics of social engagement for the Venetian community and was a key figure in the metamorphosis of Italian publishing as art director for Marsilio, Electa, Alfieri and the Italian Touring Club. Connecting the primary sources with the existing historiography of graphic design, this research study intends to describe the figure of the designer within the wider dynamics of design work and the design process.

Il pre design e il mercato rionale:
il gruppo Exhibition Design

Info:

The Exhibition Design research group, formed in the late Sixties and consisting of several protagonists of Italian graphic design such as Giulio Confalonieri, Silvio Coppola, Franco Grignani, Bruno Munari and Pino Tovaglia, is an extremely interesting experience which so far has been investigated only partially, on the sidelines of the components’ individual biographies. The analysis of this collective experience provides an opportunity to reflect on the interpenetration between graphic and industrial design in a defining moment for the history of Italian design, on the role of research and experimentation in the dialogue with both the industrial companies and the community, on the responsibility of the designer toward the end user, on the use of the exhibition space as a place for meeting and cultural dissemination.
