Giuseppe Picone (Naples 1926-Rome 2008) is a figure in the Italian creative panorama worth discovering and difficult to define. He started as a ceramist and then became a leading and sought-after fabric printer but also creator of elegant, exclusive clothes. Picone was influenced by Nordic creativity, Marimekko in particular, and made a full contribution to the generation of what would later be defined as ‘Made in Italy’. This book presents a rich and stimulating selection of many of his creations – from the first ceramics to the many graphic motifs printed on fabric and the hundreds of designs for leading Japanese companies. Compulsive, kaleidoscopic and unexpected, more than any narration, his creative world recounts the many stories that his imagination created in over 50 years of activity.
