The accompanying interactive exhibition has been curated by Alberto Alessi, president of renowned kitchen utensil company Alessi, and deals with twelve different themes, including 'The Phenomenon of the Powerhouses of Italian Design', 'Powerhouses of Italian Design vs. Mass-Production Indstries', 'What is the Real Meaning of the Term 'Design'?' and 'The Role of Objects in a Consumer Society'.
