November 29, 2011. Sforzesco Castle

The Gianfranco Ferré Foundation is on the program at the “Design italiano. Design tradito?” (Italian Design. Design Denied?) convention organized by the “Cultura Aperta” association.

Held at the Sforzesco Castle in Milan from November 29 to December 1, the event aims to analyze the current state of health of the various expressions of Italian design, of which fashion is one.

And in fact “Fashion: True Industrial Design?” is the title in interrogative form of the section of the convention that includes Foundation Director Rita Airaghi on the roster of speakers. She will illustrate the creative path of Gianfranco Ferré, designer who after earning an architecture degree went on to embrace and fulfill his vocation for fashion. In particular, she will talk about how the Ferré story fits into the picture of pure design.
