Abstract

What do humanistic design and humanist designer mean? Is there an unambiguous interpretation? Obviously it is a rhetorical question: this is a concept which has not yet been defined and which could have numerous interpretations. Is there a humanistic component in the Italian design culture which distinguishes it from other professional and industrial contexts and approaches? This article gives a possible answer through practical examples, referring to existing interpretations and focusing in particular on the concept of innovation hidden behind them.
