The exhibition in focus in this year's Tallinn Design Festival is "CREATED IN ITALY. The attitude for the impossible". The exhibition brings together numerous individual stories, in an attempt to outline the quality and characteristics of Italy’s multifarious production.

Conspicuous among these national features are a stubborn search for perfection and a renowned spirit of invention, a constant urge to experiment and to force the limits of materials. 

The exhibition seeks to offer a broad picture of the Italian industrial system. Without claiming to be exhaustive, it is an introduction to the staggering variety of objects and constellations of artefacts that are the hallmarks of Italian industry, helping to describe the complexity of typically Italian manufacturing qualities.

The heterogeneity of Italy’s industry reflects the diversity of a natural landscape astonishingly unique in its wealth of differences (from the Alps to the sea, from plains and valleys to the Apennines, volcanoes and islands…). From this angle the exhibition is intended to illustrate the importance of natural complexity and how even landscapes reflect on the country’s industrial products.

The exhibition is promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and organized by the Embassy of Italy in Tallinn in collaboration with the Estonian Association of Designers.
