Bruno Munari

One of the most imaginative and multifaceted designers of the 20th century, Bruno Munari (Milan, 24 October, 1907 - 29 September, 1998) devoted himself to drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, photography and books, becoming known above all for his creative didactic activities dedicated to children. Fascinated by the simplicity of the Bauhaus geometries, during the postwar period he joined the Movement for Concrete Art, developing a reflection on design that led him to free himself from the idea of globalization. Defined by the French art critic Pierre Restany "the Leonardo and the Peter Pan of Italian design", his dedication to the childhood sphere expressed itself in his didactical games, such as folding structures, objects to be assembled, musical instruments and books, all dedicated to involving children in the world of shapes and sounds.
