Walter De Silva retires from VW

Walter De Silva

Dear friends,

Walter De Silva the number one of all VW Group Design just retires. The news arrived this morning and rapidly got spread all over the net.

De Silva has been one of most influential car designers around the Design world bringing some freshness and elegance to VWs cars and Audi brand, he also pushed for a renewed Lamborghini Design first with Luc Donckerwolke and later on with Mr Perini.

Before VW experience Walter De Silva was Design director at Alfa Romeo in Arese. I had the pleasure to meet him when I passed by there with my portfolio at the very beginning of my career...after that meeting I went to visit Mr Bangle in Fiat where I ended up to start my career.

Walter De Silva has been also very close to car design schools and young design students bringing experience  and projects to sponsor.

Best wishes to De Silva for the after VW and I hope many design activities still to come.

Bryon Fitzpatrick another good friend goes away forever...

Dear friends,

when I read the news on Facebook about Bryon's death I was wordless and I thought ..."now he is back with Imre (Molnar) "... the couple is back together.

The Design community is loosing one of main design actor as designer and also design educator, Bryon spent his life transmitting and sharing his immense knowledge to young people helping them on their life journey.

I met Bryon Fitzpatrick at Art Center Europe in early 90' when I started teaching there on Saturday's classes. Imre Molnar was there, too. How many times we spent nice time eating all together after class, how many times with students we talked Design thinking, how many times he gave me nice suggestions to help me to be a better teacher.

From 94' on our professional lives changed so he moved with Imre Molnar at CCS in Detroit I started my adventure at IED as Head of Car Design Dept. However no matter what we always found few hours during those years to meet remembering the good old times and also telling each others our experiences about design schools.

Last time I talked to Bryon was 2 years ago, and recently via Facebook a bit more often, and now the sad news.

Dear Bryon I'll miss you,  I will keep thinking of you when I will go to a design school to talk to students, or when I answer to those that write to me looking for help.

You will be always my example to follow!
