The Guatelli Collection is the most important collection of olive oil tins in existence: from export tins to those for the domestic market produced between the end of the 19th century and the end of World War II.
The prestige of the collection lies in the fact that these are the first plates that were to serve as a reference for the circulation of the entire production: they constitute clear evidence of how, at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, factories sprang up in Liguria, particularly in the city of Imperia, as a result of the increase in olive oil production, supplying lithographed tinplate packaging for the Italian export industry.

The Guatelli Collection is the most important collection of olive oil tins in existence: from export tins to those for the domestic market produced between the end of the 19th century and the end of World War II.
The prestige of the collection lies in the fact that these are the first plates that were to serve as a reference for the circulation of the entire production: they constitute clear evidence of how, at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, factories sprang up in Liguria, particularly in the city of Imperia, as a result of the increase in olive oil production, supplying lithographed tinplate packaging for the Italian export industry.
It began that happy union between technological-industrial progress and artistic research that led to excellent results, not only from a commercial point of view but also as a means of transmitting taste and the new languages of art, which made it possible to reach an increasingly wide audience.

caleido_silvana editoriale

Silvana Editoriale was founded in 1948 by Amilcare Pizzi, as a way of remembering his daughter Silvana, who died prematurely in 1944. Through his commitment and passion, Pizzi expanded its business by publishing books of enormous value. In the mid-90s, Silvana redefined its publishing strategy, embarking on a path of growth and development on the national and international markets, focused on the fields of art, design, architecture and photography, all of which is documented in the on-site catalogue. Today, Silvana Editoriale publishes more than 400 titles a year in collaboration with Foundations, Research Institutes, Universities and Museums across Europe, the United States and the Middle East.
