The 2020 edition theme is Drawing the Future. Development, Innovation, Sustainability, Beauty. The theme will be expressed with particular attention to sustainability by 100 “Italian design ambassadors” – architects, designers, academics, business people, critics, communicators – who will bring us the best of Italian design.
