From the university the first trials in the graphics and in the ceramic industry, the first Biennale di Monza to the direction of Domus, with multiple collaborations with industrial achievements of scenes and costumes: anywhere emerges and takes its distinctive form an outstanding contribution to the recovery and the affirmation of the Italian production after two world wars and subsequent periods of crisis. Its importance to the design in the world is demonstrated by the fact that many of his creations, amply documented in the book, have always remained in production while others are periodically taken from the most important manufacturers of design objects.
