I’m glad to have been able to involve Anty Pansera in this project – declares the director Guerisoliwe started from the territory and asked ourselves what design collection the Lissone Museum could have to emphasize the identity of the territory and differentiate itself from the others in Lombardy. We have been thinking about how we can confirm the special history of this city, a happy history, by transporting it into the present to look ahead. That is why we have given a section of the award “The furniture that is not there”, which presents prototypes, projects and design ideas. The second section, “Historical Product”, instead aims to reinforce objects that have already been made, even in recent years, which represent the professional careers of the various designers and studios involved. We asked them to represent their creative path through an object and also state the reasons for that choice. The resulting exhibition is varied and lively“.

Anty Panserahistorian and critic of design, said she was pleased to “go back to Mac, a very beautiful and very accessible museum. I was trying to think about what it meant to return to Lissone, to return to thinking of an award that involves professionals dealing with furniture and decor accessories.
