ITALIAN VERSION

L'Archivio del Cinema Industriale organizza la decima edizione della Giornata del Cinema, quest'anno dedicata alla storia dell'industria chimica, in occasione dell'International Year of Chemistry

Il convegno – che vedrà un'alternanza di relazioni e di proiezioni di filmati industriali dagli anni quaranta agli anni novanta – toccherà alcuni degli snodi dell'evoluzione del rapporto tra imprese, consumatori e industria chimica nella seconda metà del Novecento come l'impatto sul sistema moda dell'introduzione delle fibre artificiali e le trasformazioni nell'ambito del design stimolate dalla diffusione della plastica.

La giornata di studio prevede anche la presentazione di testimonianze da parte di imprenditori locali sulle problematiche e sull'evoluzione storica del settore nel territorio varesino.
