Gillo Dorfles’ conference entitled “A discussion of design and art today” is one of the main attractions at the Biennial, which will also include contributions by Gabriele Pezzini, Alberto Meda and Philippe Daverio as well as round tables, workshops and exhibitions such as “Norwegian Talks”, a travelling exhibition and convention offering people an opportunity to get to know the work of Norwegian architects Knut Hjeltnes, Carl-Viggo H?lmebakk, Jensen&Skodvin. The "International Design Biennial" of which the current edition is a preview starts out as a complex of events focusing on design which will continue every two years starting in 2012. The goal is to investigate and explore the different dimensions of design, defined as a strong expression of socio-cultural change and new lifestyles, a strategic factor in innovation and a significant component in socio-economic development; hence the title of edition 0, “A laboratory of ideas for innovation and the future”.
