Made in Italy

Fiat 500. Vespa. Campari. Fellini. Vittorio De Sica. Sophia Loren. Fast cars. Beautiful women. All undeniably Made in Italy. The latest exhibition to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification aims to present the “Made in Italy phenomenon” as a reinforcement of the nation’s sense of identity in a fantastic double-venue show in the capital. At the Palazzo delle Esposizioni you can immerse yourself in what is unequivocally cool about Italy, through photos, objects, posters and propaganda from 1961 to today. Over at the fantastic MACRO Future in Testaccio the focus is on contemporary design and the future of “Made in Italy,” with around 400 new design products, plus debates, films and music on the theme of Italian-ness and an outdoor restaurant with Mediterranean dishes to boot.

Until 25 September. Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Via Nazionale, 194. €10. MACRO Testaccio, Piazza Orazio Giustiniani, 4. €4.
