I prefer calling this experience a 'story' rather than a 'lesson'. I teach at school, but my approach is based on exchange and excitement. I try to transfer to my guests my passion without being rigid. I will let you explore Italy, from north to south, through domestic objects.
Hi! I'm Valentina and I teach History of Design since 2009 in Milan, Italy. I am passionate about what I do and I am fascinated about how design, art, history and culture in general can be strongly connected and linked through history and different countries. I will present you in an informal way some highlights of italian design, starting from everyday object and landing in the 'great masters' field, where I will present you some of the most iconic pieces of italian design. Let's explore objects, materials and design pieces together!
Curiosity and the will to explore your own living space!
"While you'll be at home, I will be in my home based in Como. I will have around me some of the pieces we will talk about and will show you how they work and highlight some others through books and images I have been collecting during the years. A journey through italian regions, without moving from my table!"
