The first comprehensive review of the production and culture of modern design in a dynamic cross-border European region.

Design from the Alps is the story of the fascinating adventure of design in this Alpine area, a natural bridge that connects northern and southern Europe and therefore possesses a surprising ability to absorb the most advanced instances of modern design. The project is the result of an interdisciplinary collaboration between NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arte, Milan) and the Free University of Bolzano. Scientific support is provided by Professors Claudio Larcher, Massimo Martignoni and Antonino Benincasa, with the involvement of the creative potential of international young design students. KUNST MERAN MERANO ARTE is co-ordinating and guiding the project.
