The first part of the programme will consist of two cycles of lectures and online conferences on aspects of design of common interest to both countries, followed by a study tour to Italy for the participants.

In fact, design is intended not only as a commercial vehicle for companies in the sector, but above all as a cultural engine to promote Italy and the “Country System” in its broadest sense: cultural, artistic, social, economic and educational.
