Book: “Argomenti per un dizionario del design”

Ugo La Pietra

“Argomenti per un dizionario del design”

Edited by Carlo Vinti
Habitat Design series

«When, through time, the evolution of language passed from a few words to a growing number of expressions, it became necessary to use a” dictionary “capable of listing the various terms and giving each one the right interpretation. It is possible, in a sense, to compare this evolution to the route taken by design ».
Ugo La Pietra

Thirty items – dedicated to themes such as home furnishings, craftsmanship, the city, fashion and technology – are the backbone of this atypical dictionary, which contains about a hundred texts written by Ugo La Pietra on the many problems related to project culture and refer to the large disciplinary area ranging from the applied arts to industrial design, up to architecture. The articles and essays published here, always accompanied by images full of illustrative indications, irony and meta-projectual allusions, cover a time span going from 1972 to the present, and testify to the author’s continuous and unstoppable cognitive exercise.
