Those with an interest in the history of 20th-century European design could do worse than visit Villa Audi this week.The exhibition showcases the history of Italian artistic and industrial design in the 20th century.The Italian Foreign Ministry has dubbed 2016 "the year of design" and Italian Cultural Institute director Edoardo Cristafulli said this show is just the first of several Italian-sponsored cultural events, which are expected to include industrial design, architecture and fine arts.Similarly, pieces such as Poggi's Sedia Golem chairs, by Vico Magistretti (1968), and the Sedia Luisella chair by, Franco Albini and Franca Helg (1959), serve as reminders of the evolution of product and home design in the last century.Although some of the pieces are no longer in production, they suggest something of Italy's role at the cutting edge of international design.
