Services

ADI offers different services regarding intellectual property, professional information and historical research, to its members and to all designers and enterprises. Please note: The services mentioned below are offered from ADI's head office in Milan.

Federlegno Arredo Maurizio Magno Library in Rome
Federlegno offers the possibility to ADI Centro’s members to visit and consult its library. The library is named after Maurizio Magni who, during his many years as the director of Federlegno’s offices in Rome, gathered a large collection of books about the wood sector and about design. The collection contains many documents which are difficult to find elsewhere and is therefore of interest for students and researchers.
The catalogue of the library is online on Federlegno’s website (only in Italian)
To visit the library please make an appointment with Laura Nanni by phone +39 0642006821
