Drawing for Industrial Design deals almost with the same issues of the architectural drawing, even if it is characterized by its own distinct, autonomous and original principles. It declines representation methods, codes and techniques not only in comparison with a dimensional dissimilarity, but especially refers to a specific cultural and disciplinary identity. We need to identify means and styles of representation to comprehend a wide range of contents of different nature: geometrical, technological, structural, functional, aesthetical. These different features make design different from other project categories. The fundamental issues, that could even be integrated, are: how to draw, which methods, techniques or tools (analogic or digital) we need to favour thinking of design? To reply to this and to other issues, a research project had been drawn up following two separate stages. The former deals with the study of some fundamental historical references, expecially those identified by the major european School of Design, to reach a set of information and knowledge that act for an essential theoretical and operating cultural model. The latter deals with the elaboration of a new way of drawing industrial design, according to a project-oriented methodology, not only devoted to its technical but also diffuse and shared communication.
