Georgia's capital Tbilisi marked the launch of three exhibitions to mark the annual celebrations of Italian design and architecture in the country this week, with scientific, academic and business communities involved alongside dignitaries from the two states. 

At the city's  Museum of Modern Art, a display organised in collaboration with the  National Council of Architects, Planners, Landscapers and Conservatives was unveiled with a look at design, technologies and sustainability.

It involved the Georgian edition of the prestigious Domus magazine - launched in December - taking the question "Can History and The Future Cohabit?" to form the exhibition, while a creative competition was also unveiled to identify young Georgian designers via their projects.

Set to be awarded by the Italian Embassy and the European Institute of Design, the winning entrants will be featured in the programme after the conclusion of the main display, with a full scholarship at an Italian institution designated for the outright winner, a spot in a Smart Creativity course awaiting the runner-up, and a "surprise award" drawn up for the Jury Award winner of the contest.
