There are so many things to love about Italy that it’s hard to enumerate them all. But below is my list of five. I invite you to add your favorites to this list:
1. Italian store signs in neon and on glass (top)2. Italian tin can package designs (below).3. Italian modernisimo typefaces (bottom).4. Italian fumetti.5. Italian candy.
Also, I’ll take this opportunity to remind you Italophiles about the SVA Masters Workshop in Venice and Rome, a special two-week event to learn about graphic design and all things Italian. There are only four spots open. So, if you love Italy and design or Italian design (including my faves above), please check out the program here, faculty here, and the collaborators here. Ciao!
