Item description for A Trip Through Italian Design by Franca Santi Gualteri...
In the 1950s, when contemporary industrial design was just beginning to take off in Italy, Franca Santi Gualtieri was invited to join the editorial team of the fledgling Stile Industria, an offshoot of the influential design magazine, Domus. Written as a personal history of the birth of contemporary Italian industrial design, this charming and engaging paperback maps out the story of Gualtieri's experience at the magazine from the years 1954 to 1963, as well as his close collaboration with the famed, contemporaneous Abitare magazine. Contributors to both magazines made their careers as designers during the era, and are today among the most famous in the world--including Ettore Sottsass, Bruno Munari, Vico Magistretti, Albe Steiner and many others. Stile Industria was a landmark publication that wielded tremendous influence over its 10 years of existence. It defined the design standard during an era when Italy led the way for the rest of the world.

Good readilng, don't buy for the images Nov 2, 2008
Good reading, but do not buy for the images. Maybe I had unrealistic expectations, but I was hoping for a lot more images to go along with the text. Nice book though, and for the price, it is definitely worth it.
