Compasso d'Oro Award: the Future Turns 70 Years Old

Twenty Compasso d’Oro awards, 9 Italian and 2 international personalities to whom the Compasso d’Oro for lifetime achievement went for the importance of their figure in the world of design, 3 Compasso d’Oro awards to long-selling products, design successes on the market with a career spanning more than a decade, all three stemming from the work of Gio Ponti. This is the balance of the 28th edition of the Compasso d’Oro ADI award, on the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the prize. The awards were presented to designers and manufacturers on 20 June at the ADI Design Museum, in Milan square named after the prize. Attending were Lombardy Region President Attilio Fontana and Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala. Celebrating the 70th birthday of the award with them were Luciano Galimberti, president of ADI, and Umberto Cabini, president of Fondazione ADI Collezione Compasso d’Oro.

During the award ceremony, an important novelty was announced, meant to expand the presence of Italian design in the world: a new edition of the Compasso d’Oro International Award, open to designers from countries participating in the Expo, which will be launched in September on the compassodorointernational.com website, and will conclude with an exhibition of the winners in the Italian Pavilion at Expo Osaka 2025. Elena Sgarbi, Deputy Commissioner for Italy at Expo 2025 Osaka, spoke about it.

At the end of the award ceremony, an exhibition with 174 products participating in the 2024 edition was opened at the ADI Design Museum, which will remain open until 16 September. All the objects that received the award or an Honorable Mention will enter the Compasso d’Oro Collection, permanently exhibited at the ADI Design Museum in Milan, which includes all the objects awarded in the 70 years of the award’s existence.
