The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Mexico and the Italian Embassy in Mexico City invite IED to participate in the first Encuentros Creativos (Creative Encounters) in Mexico City, where IED professors and alumni will give lectures within the program developed in collaboration with influencers, media and the business world in Mexico, seeking to inspire the Mexican creative community with la bella Italia!

Creativity overflows in Italy, so it’s no wonder that Italian jewelry designers create some of the most amazing and unique pieces in the entire world. Bárbara Brocchi, through her talk “Italian Jewelry Design: Introduction to History and Tradition,” will share a little bit about the history and tradition of Italian jewelry, its context today and brands that have made history!

Simone Bonanni will speak of “Products like Activators of Emotions,” through a deep understanding of essence, context, function and meaning. All these elements always find new ways to coexist and come to life in different ways. A relationship between a work of art and its user.

La macchina italiana! Michele Albera will talk about an iconic Italian brand: Lamborghini. The design process that led from the Miura to the Countach. A great example rarely seen in the automotive industry: hence a new expressive language, new canons of mechanical design and design solutions were born.

Daria Filardo will speak of “Products like Activators of Emotions,” through a deep understanding of essence, context, function and meaning. All these elements always find new ways to coexist and come to life in different ways. A relationship between a work of art and its user.

In addition to these renowned speakers, IED invites young creators to turn their ideas into projects, participating in IED’s Summer Grant for 2022 – under the theme “Respect.” People, places, future scenarios, are the issues we face today, gathered in the UN SDGs – Sustainable Development Goals – established by the United Nations (www.globalgoals.org). The ultimate goal of design – and everything created by a designer – is to improve the world and our lives: it dresses us, transports us, entertains us, tells stories, makes us think and makes our lives easier.

Encuentro Creativo will take place from October 18-29, 2021
