h more than a mere catalogue or bibliography, this book includes a rich introduction dedicated to the different possible courses in munari s multi faceted production, that helps to consider it side by side with his contemporary works in the fields of painting, sculpture, design, photography and didactics, crossing their different poetics. also, a bibliographical index of critical essays about munari is a useful instrument to analyze in depth munari s works. bruno munari 1907-1998 has been no doubt the most eclectic italian artist designer. since his very first experiences in the 30s among the artists of the second futurism, he always dedicated his creative activity to every form of experimentation, with a particular attention to the world of children and their games and toys. his works in the fields of painting, sculpture, design, photography and didactics cross their languages and poetics following the path of his very personal inventiveness.
