The Icograda Design Week Torino is held in a unique and internationally prestigious context; it is in fact included in the Torino 2008 World Design Capital agenda.
Now in its first year, this biennial event will be hosted in the city of Turin, where international events devoted to every single design sector will be held across 2008.
The city of Turin has been short-listed out of a number of famous world cities, based on its historical importance in the Italian design and manufacturing sector, for its excellent infrastructure and central geographical position. Turin hosts cultural organizations, museums, events of national and international interest, driving massive innovation over the past decade. This innovation process did not stop following the successful outcome of the Winter Olympics 2006.
