This exhibition catalogue is a unique document that encapsulates the exhibition visually and adds literary content to it. The variety of objects, covering all aspects of Italian life, from common, daily activities to special religious events. They range from espresso machines to papal vestments Since World War II Italian design has been preeminent among connoisseurs.
