Compasso d'Oro Award

Established in 1954, the Compasso d'Oro ADI Award is the oldest but above all the most authoritative world design award.

Born from an idea of ​​Gio Ponti, it was for years organized by the Rinascente department stores, with the aim of highlighting the value and quality of the products of Italian design at the time of its dawn. Subsequently, it was donated to ADI which has been organizing it since 1958, monitoring its impartiality and integrity.
