A MESSAGE FROM GIANCARLO PERINI, PUBLISHER.

Car designers around the world, please help us to raise this baby. Make it yours.

Yes, you can!

Through the past five years I have been running a blog dedicated to car design with an experimental approach. I was eager to establish a bridge with the design community and to gain experience on the web.

Now, time has come for a new project with broader goals, focuses and reach.

The goal is to establish a very lively «Café littéraire» where professional designers, design educators and students, car and design enthusiasts meet, show their ideas, discuss design matters and trends, contribute with their own reports and stories to the development of a modern design culture, with past experiences and inputs from different cultures.

Please subscribe to our " Newsletter" to keep up with the progress Automotive Design Club International.

And, please, invite all your friends to join us, here and now.

Work is in progress. Be part of it!

{jcomments on}Live-Body-Art--Via-Tortona-05All those who have an interest in design should pay a visit to Milano this week.   Design is everywhere and in virtually every mind. There is so much to feel, to hear and to see that professionals and enthusiasts only have to choose.
Those who are in the furniture business have no choice but the Salome del Mobile at the large «Fiery di Milano» at Rho, on the outskirts of Milano.
On the contrary those who are more interested in design will have no doubt and take a full immersion into the “Fuorisalone”.


The choice is not easy because there is so much and so many interesting expression of creativity of all sort that one could easily spend the entire “Milano Design Week” going places, meeting artists and designers, sipping cocktails and exchange idea sass well as business cards.
Do some shopping; enjoy a “Cotoletta Milanese”

    To get the most out of the first day, on April 8th, I opted to reach Milano by train, buy a one-day ticket (at €4.50) for all public transportation and subscribe to the Bike-MI (for Milano) service.
    To save time and energies and to maximise efficiency the bike is the best option, even if those for public rental are heavy and not the easiest too ride (the front wheel carries to high a load and the handlebar is heavy). Not all are smooth and there is not much space for riders on the street but follows the rule “in Rome do as Romans do” and you will be fine.

    Many carmakers want to be part of the Italian design festival and are indeed part of it since several years, such as Audi and Lexus. Other ones, such as Ford are just marking their presence but miss to show new ideas and creativity
