Fracassi and Egoundesign CDFA 2023 guests

Masterclass – MAY 4  at 5 p.m. and 8.30 pm at CINEPORTO DELL’EMILIA ROMAGNA


The 4th edition of the Caesar Design Film Award is based on a journey of inspiration and refleciton.
This year, it’s double!

It begins, in the afternoon, with an event for students of Industrial Product Design at the University of Bologna, who will have the opportunity to talk with Cristian Fracassi, inventor, among others, of low-cost protests to help the wounded of the war in Ukraine. Beside, during one of the darkest periods in recent history, Fracassi was able to adapt a snorkelling mask produced by Decathlon and, thanks to a valve printed with 3D technology, he built real respirators for patients suffering from Covid-19.

The night will continue with a talk by Egoundesign, a Bologna-based design studio, to investigate the concept behind the new edition of the CDFA. The studio’s designers will tell us about their approach to Design Visions starting from their interesting portfolio, which combines technological and craft productions The Cento3 project, created by Achille Castiglioni and Gianfranco Cavaglià, ranks among the team’s accomplishments.
