Since 2012, the ‘reciprocity’ and the design for social innovation are the common theme of RECIPROCITY 2015.

Among the main themes, we can find food, re-building and re-use of material, the creative approach of design and co-design (co-conception designer/users) linked with the industrial and manufacturing economy, social design, design as a tool for the social innovation of a neighbourhood, of a city, of a public service, the importance of the teaching method of the branches linked to design, the multidisciplinarity and the broadening of the intervention spaces, technology as an important source of cohesion and awareness, digital literacy, the new production models (FabLabs), architecture as a tool of sustainable development of the territory, the role played by visual communication in social change...
