“Every crisis poses an alternative. It compels movement. Innovation. A countermove. It does not allow for inertia, waiting, routine.” This catalogue that accompanies the VII edition of the Triennale Design Museum, seeks to explore the creative potential induced by the crisis, ultimately responding to a fundamental question: “what did Italian design do when it found itself operated in a society with ‘its back against the wall’”? The volume focuses its attention on the theme of self-sufficient production in three different time periods: the 1930s (From autarky to autonomy), the 1970s (From austerity to participation) and the Noughties (From self-production to self-sufficiency).
