「Italian Design Day」的概念是由米蘭三年展中心（Triennale di Milano）的總監，Andrea Cancellato所提出，期待透過此推廣活動讓全世界看見義大利的卓越設計與品質。義大利外交部目前正在招攬有興趣委派代表擔任「設計大使」的義大利公司至本計畫所囊括的城市，涵蓋領域則包含家具、家飾、照明，運輸工具（特別是汽車）、運動、食品以及飾品等。
The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs intends to promote the 2 of March of 2017 a day dedicated to the Italian design by organising 100 events in 100 cities around the world.
The concept of the Italian Design Day, proposed by Andrea Cancellato, general director of the Triennale di Milano, represents a visibility opportunity for Italian companies to show the world the excellence of Italian design as well as quality.
The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is currently collecting interested Italian companies to send an "Ambassador of Design" to one of the cities identified in the concept. The sectors included in this promotional initiative are furniture, home decor, lighting, general transportation (especially automobile), sports, food and accessories.
