Interior architect and designer since the 1970s. A natural curiosity for innovation, material research and technology, profound observation of the surrounding reality enabled her to design for prestigious companies, in completely unrelated fields. The same traits are now the pivotal elements in the work of the Talocci Design studio, which specialises in: product design, exhibition design, interior design, event organisation, integrated communication, art direction. Giovanna Talocci has received numerous acknowledgments, among them three ADI Design Index selections, four referrals at the Compasso D’Oro award and four Design Plus prizes. Alongside her design activities, she also works as cultural events curator and consultant for various trade exhibitions, anchor woman and guest of television programmes on design, and lecturer at universities and design schools. She has been a member of ADI (Industrial Design Association) since 1979 and of the ADI National Steering Committee since 2004. In addition, she was a member of the first Italian Council for Design.
