Italian Design Icons is an exhibit curated by Silvana Annicchiarico that explores various objects and products that have defined Italian culture and history. Objects in the collection include Salvatore Ferragamo high heels and vespas.

The exhibit is on display at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, and the time range for the artifacts ranges from the 1930s until today. It's interesting to look at this exhibit, and realize just how many popular products that are well-known around the world are such an integral part of Italian culture. The vespa is by far the most recognizable product, made popular through classic movies set in Italy where stars explored the area on the popular motorized scooter.

Silvana Annicchiarico takes visitors on a ride through history with this exhibit.
