Established in 1991 by Marco in memory of his father Rodolfo Bonetto, one of the great masters of Italian design, the ‘ Targa Bonetto ‘ aims to reflect the thought of this great designer who during his professional career he wanted to not only create design innovation but also an innovation of industrial product-related concept.
The prize in its content and in the types of products wants to be closer to the figure of Rodolfo Bonetto. “The experimentation of young interests me a lot, because they create new ideas that exert a major influence on lifestyle and design” (Rodolfo Bonetto).
Self-taught, Rodolfo Bonetto has provided an essential contribution to the teaching of Industrial Design. Lecturer at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Ulm, and Isia of Rome, Member and President of the ADI and ICSID, received eight “Compasso D’Oro”. “The design is like a butterfly in his hands, he would often repeat Rodolfo, if too tight it dies if you let go flies away”.(Rodolfo Bonetto)
Marco Bonetto says: “the advancement of technological innovation cannot be separated from design, intended as an element of synthesis between the man and the instrument. More sophisticated and clever design that manages to generate extraordinarily surprising market scenarios, a design that manages to become a determining factor in more design interests.
