At the CSAC of the Parma University opens the exhibition Ettore Sottsass. Beyond design, sponsored by CSAC with a group of architecture, design and contemporary art historians.

The exhibition features about 700 selected works, on display according to a chronological narration (starting from a drawing as a kid in 1922), which point out some visual constant habits of the author. The title of the exhibition itself recalls the usual way of working of Sottsass, that was always beyond his specific activity of designer towards a wider vision, where drawing is absolutely central as a mean of projecting but first and above all as a moment of reflection.
