Language: English, italian - 286 pages - color illustrations - Montagne, colline, parchi, fiumi, laghi, lidi marini, città d'arte di antichissima fondazione, stazioni termali, ville rinascimentali, fascinose rovine archeologiche e una solida tradizione di ospitalità rendono l'Italia, sin dalla fine dell'Ottocento, meta privilegiata di un nascente turismo nazionale e internazionale, esclusivo e colto. Per diffondere, presso gli stessi italiani e presso la clientela estera, tutte le attrattive del Bel Paese, ci si serviva di quelli che erano allora gli strumenti pubblicitari per eccellenza: manifesti, locandine, dépliant, riviste illustrate. Alla loro forza di comunicazione e penetrazione capillare sono affidate immagini luminose, ridenti, sempre elegantissime, tanto per scelte cromatiche che per soluzioni formali, e spesso affidate al pennello dei più grandi illustratori dell'epoca, da Duilio Cambellotti a Leonetto Cappiello, da Marcello Dudovich a Franz Lenhart, da Gino Boccasile a Mario Puppo. Il viaggio, uno dei "sogni" più a portata di mano e più affascinanti per l'uomo del Novecento, diventa così, per molti se non per tutti, un bisogno sociale e una finalmente accessibile parentesi di bellezza, 'loisirs', quiete, civiltà e cultura.

Product Description:

In the late nineteenth century up until very recently, for the middle classes, the famous and the wealthy alike, an extended tour of Italy was a necessary part of a cultural education. Italy's cuisine, its landscapes, its countless art capitals, archeological ruins and its tradition of hospitality made the country a favored destination for an exclusive class of tourist. To alert this lucrative market--as well as Italians themselves--to the many attractions of the Beautiful Country, the message was laid on with graphic radiance in the print culture of the times, through posters, flyers, brochures and picture magazines. Graphic design for tourism advertising was often commissioned from the leading illustrators of the period, from Duilio Cambellotti to Leonetto Cappiello, from Marcello Dudovich to Franz Lenhart, from Gino Boccasile to Mario Puppo. This volume draws on the collection of Achille Bertarelli to tell the story of Italian tourism's rich graphic design heritage in 250 color reproductions.

Review:

enduringly beautiful images, often under the visual spell of Futurism or Art Deco... are newly collected in "Manifesti Posters: Traveling Around Italy Through Advertising 1895-1960"--Stephen Heyman "T: The New York Times Style Magazine "
