Italian Design Day is an annual theme-based global event launched in 2017 by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, in collaboration and with the support of the Ministry of Culture. The event offers promotional and cultural events created by a network of embassies, consulates, and Italian Trade Agency offices worldwide. It aims to support the promotion of design and internationalization of a strategic industrial sector for Italian exports.

This year’s theme highlighted some of the current challenges that design faces, including promoting a transition of lifestyles that combines functionality and well-being with sustainability and reduced environmental impact and regenerating objects and spaces.

The event saw the participation of Italian Designer Giulio Iacchetti and hosted the exhibition “Created in Italy: an aptitude for the impossible,” which displayed several stories of Italian industrial and artisanal creativity and companies and entrepreneurs who have launched innovative and sustainable pathways within the sector.

At the opening ceremony, Ambassador Luciano Pezzotti highlighted the importance of sustainable design and emphasized the need for “dialogue and collaboration between designers, architects, engineers, and all of the other actors involved” to achieve environmentally friendly and creative design projects successfully.
