On 12th October, a round-table talk called “Democrazia e Design” will take place at MIAAO, Laboratorio di San Filippo Neri (via Maria Vittoria 7/a, Torino), during the prestigious event Torino Design of the City (9th-16th October).

In this context, “Democrazia and Design” will offer its contribution, as part of the initiative Stand Up for Democracy, focusing on the idea of design democracy, intended as a democracy regenerated by the variety and dynamism of projects happening within it, where the figure of designer contributes in several ways.
