Giulio Cappellini, curator of I-MADE 2019, with the collaboration of designer Leonardo Talarico, has selected a series of iconic pieces by the top Italian brands. The leitmotiv of this selection is represented by Revolutionary Icons: design icons that represented a revolution in the world of design and redefined our living habits when they were launched. Of some of these icons, special reissues are already in production, contributing to increasing the fame of these historical pieces.
