FERRARI @ ITALIAN DESIGN DAY
Lecture with Flavio Manzoni, Head of Ferrari Design at Italian embassy
Lately Cc had the pleasure to be in charge of the event coordination and organization on behalf of Ferrari for the Italian Design Day. The international series of events under the title of Italian Design Day was developed with the goal to bring the uniqueness and excellence of Italian design to the forefront on a global scale. The German edition was hosted by the Italian embassy in Berlin in the form of a guest design lecture including the Head of Ferrari Design, Flavio Manzoni alongside Moroso Owner, Patrizia Moroso. Guests from various creative industries such as Architecture, Industrial Design and the Arts were invited to the interactive presentation which was moderated by Claudius Seidl, Feuilleton director of Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung. This event has given design professionals based in Germany the possibility to meet and dialogue directly with Mr. Manzoni in order to discover the values that can be considered at both the base of Ferrari Design and the role that it plays in Italy’s international reputation.

Cc's cultural engagement
COME ALIVE! Circle Culture Gallery presents an exhibition in the spirit of Corita Kent.
Admired by Charles and Ray Eames, Alfred Hitchcock and Saul Bass, Corita Kent (1918–1986) was one of the most innovative and unusual pop artists of the 1960s, battling the political and religious establishments, revolutionizing graphic design and encouraging the creativity of thousands of people – all while living and practicing as a Catholic nun in California. Mixing advertising slogans and poetry in her prints and commandeering nuns and students to help make ambitious installations, processions and banners, Corita’s work is now recognized as some of the most striking – and joyful – American art of the 60s. With the exhibition "COME ALIVE!“, Circle Culture Gallery presents Coritas work in dialogue with statements by contemporary artists Stefan Strumbel, Katrin Fridriks, Aaron Rose and Adrian Falkner, who refer back to Coritas artistic spirit. Affiliated to Circle Culture Gallery, we are highly inspired by Coritas artistic approach that could hardly be more topical today. It is our strong belief that 'out of the box‘-thinking, teamwork and a courageous attitude are crucial skills for innovation processes. Join us for the exhibition opening on February 8, 7 – 10 pm @ REBELLE Pop-Up Space, Neuer Wall 72, 20354 Hamburg. Cc is proud to support the exhibition.
