  1. Ciao and auguri to Massimo, whom I haven’t seen since we were at the Polaroid Design Conference in Amsterdam in 1970. What a very generous gift to designers and students everywhere. Mille grazie.

  3. Quote from the Book:
    “We are for a Design that lasts, that responds to people’s needs and to people’s wants. We are for a Design that is committed to a society that demands long lasting values. A society that earns the benefit of commodities and deserves respect and integrity.”

    “respond yo peoples wants” ????????

    “a society that demands long lasting values” ?????
