— 21 June 2024
1970 - Castello Sforzesco, Sala della Calla

The XXVIII edition saw the best projects awarded with the prestigious award in various fields of application, from furniture to mobility, publishing and student works.

Since 1954, the Compasso D'Oro has been the most coveted award for designers and companies: for 70 years, the best Italian projects in various fields have been awarded the prize created by Gio Ponti and today dedicated to those projects that have distinguished themselves in fields ranging from furniture to mobility, from social design to the projects of design students at Italian universities.

The award is one of the points of reference for a sector that today represents one of the most relevant cultural and economic values ​​and, between the succession of various editions, the objects and projects that have received the Compasso D'oro have given rise to a collection historical piece of approximately 2500 pieces, exhibited at ADI Design Museum (ADI stands for Association for Industrial Design) inaugurated in Milan in 2021.


The awarding of the Compasso d'Oro is the result of a three-phase process: from the annual overview of the ADI Design Index, conducted region by region, to the subsequent evaluation by specialists in their own fields - a scientific selection process, which lasts two years and involves a permanent multidisciplinary observatory of around 150 experts, until the selection results are presented to an international jury, composed by Maria Cristina Didero, independent author and curator; Luciano Galimberti, designer and president of ADI; Francisco Gómez Paz, designer; Renata Cristina Mazzantini, director of the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome; Toshiyuki Kita, designer and Ambassador of the Italian Pavilion at Expo 2025 Osaka, who then selected the winning projects.
