This volume, celebrating the fifty-year anniversary of the famous trademark, is convincing proof of how design is part and parcel with contemporary living. This book gathers the history of half a century of style and design, a story that draws on a wealth of recollections, anecdotes, characters and Maddalena De Padova's good taste. The De Padova style is the epitome of Italian taste, thanks to a simplicity of solutions that conceal so much skill at planning and realising objects, furnishings, and spaces in perfect harmony. An ample section of the book is devoted to all those designers, architects and graphic artists who have contributed to enriching the De Padova trademark, absolute icons of design the world over, names like Charles Eames, Achille Castiglioni, Dieter Rams, Vico Magistretti, to mention only a few.
