IACDE italian Chapter

Known as a very creative nation we share our creative intelligence on the international scene. The Italian IACDE chapter was founded in the early seventies and grown throughout Italy with the accession of the best design companies and organisation such as Made in Italy. Our growth and success are due to the active participation of various presidents, shareholders and the work done by the secretaries.

The first president was Emidio Tucci and the club had successively fifteen presidents. The current president is the Associate Designer Lodovico Zandegù. Four conventions were held in Italy : Ischia , 1974, Abano Terme – Venice 1985, Milan 1996, Naples 2003.
