[Autore: Francesco Dondina]
The second edition of SIGNS.

The volume aims to map out Italian excellence in the field of graphics, reflecting on a dynamic and constantly evolving path over time.


The second edition of SIGNS. Grafica Italiana Contemporanea (Contemporary Italian Graphics), in continuity with the first one in 2016, aims to present to the general public not only the profession of the graphic designer and its disciplinary sphere, but also the different languages, typicalities and orientations of some of the main representatives of visual design, which in the wake of its great historical tradition is still capable of renewing itself today, comparing itself with the international panorama. The authors and studies documented in this volume are therefore not intended to be a definitive and arbitrary selection, but rather the stage of a virtuous path that aims to map out Italian excellence in the field of graphics over time.
