Places, relationship networks on the territory, men, designers (inventors, entrepreneurs, craftsmen) and innovative objects representing the typical Milanese capability to generate creativity.These are the absolute protagonists of Milanomadeindesign, the book that deals with the best creativity in design as showed in the exhibition that the Province of Milan in collaboration with the Region of Lombardia has presented in New York, and collects the most interesting public and private institutions of the territory. The book lead is design knowledge perceived not only as narrow book-learning but as a broad sense of all the phases of the production process. The kind of learning that is not easily replicated the kind of learning coming from a communitys common knowledge of a particular tradition of entrepreneurial endeavour, artisanal practices, and a network of small and medium size enterprises. A complex system where the role of man, contributing with his own skills, his talent and work are fundamental.
