Torino (Italy) - As part of the lineup of Icograda Design Week events taking place from 13-19 October 2008 in Torino, Italy, three exhibitions, Mulitverso, Italic 2.0 and "Alba" (Dawn), will showcase a selection of both international and Italian design.



The main exhibition, Multiverso, will feature an international selection of communication design work addressing the Multiverso theme. Multiverse is a theory that admits the idea of the existence of many universes, where different laws apply; in the same way, Multiverso can also describe a kind of design that is open-ended, open-source, bottom-up, relational, process-based.

The exhibiotion will include works by: Ruedi Baur, Andrew Blauvelt, Peter Bilak, Catalogtree, Pierre Di Sciullo, John Morgan Studio, Ji Lee, Jürg Lehni, LUST, Luna Maurer, Mevis & Van Deursen, Norm, Stefan Sagmeister, Todo, Tomato, Welcometo.as., and more.



Italic 2.0
shows the most recent developments in the Italian typographic scene, which has recently shown a real boom, thanks to the work of many new designers. The main threads of developments are shown: research and experimentation, teaching, revival of historical models, custom and independent typefaces.

The exhibition will feature works by Elena Albertoni, Giovanni De Faccio, Piero De Macchi, Alessio Leonardi, Fabrizio Schiavi and many others.

The book Italic 2.0, published by DeAgostini, will be launched on the opening of the exhibition.



"Alba, nuovi manifesti italiani" (Dawn, new Italian posters) presents 130 posters designed between 2000 and 2007 by 42 Italian graphic designers who face often difficult and contradictory contexts and methods in Italy. One thing is certain, if the Italian poster is to survive, it must regain its role and/or set off in new directions. The new "culture of design" generation is called upon to solve this difficult task.
