[11] - In the discussion organised by the journal Domus under the heading, ‘In the World of Objects’ for the April 2004 edition, between Andrea Branzi, Ettore Sottsass, Alessandro Mendini, Vico Magistretti and Enzo Mari, the focus is immediately on the need for passionate company managers who are not guided solely by mass production. After the Second World War, Italian design became great thanks to manufacturers who dared to think big and still worked partly at traditional level. Ettore Sottsass: ‘And manufacturers were different too. They were young industrialists, almost all of them anti-fascists that had entered their fathers’ businesses right after the war. They hoped that Italy could come up with something new, both socially and ethically. They followed us with great ethical passion, but they were not real industrialists. They were mechanized artisans.’ - Enzo Mari: ‘They were industrialists who were not familiar with the horrors of industrial production and naively took risks in equipping their factories. Sometimes all went well, often they went bankrupt.’ Maria Cristina Tommasini, ‘In the World of Objects’, in Domus, 869, April 2004, p. 32.
