Cromorama: talk with Riccardo Falcinelli

I’ve been invited, from the staff of the festival “Conversazioni sul futuro,” to introduce Cromorama, the new book of Riccardo Falcinelli, one of the most renowned italian designer.

The talk will take place on Saturday Oct 28, 8.30 pm,  @Ergot, Lecce

In this book Falcinelli, with the help of 400 illustrations, explains how the modern gaze is changing, through the universe of images: not just painting, but also literature, cinema, comics and most of all things of the everyday life, all shown and connected in an original way by the author.
