Vintage Poster Collection
This exhibit details the history of Italy's travel posters from the
beginning of the 1900's to its peak in the 1960's, which could be
considered the golden age of poster art.
While these posters have come to represent Italy’s collective memory they remain absolutely relevant to the country’s present and future. They are indeed classic and evergreen just like the beautiful destinations they depict.
Standing in front of them the mind lazily starts to wander off to those evocative spots already visited or on everybody’s bucket list: the sky-high spires of the Duomo in Milan, the majesty of the Italian Alps, Bologna and its towers, the art towns big and small, the hills of Tuscany and Umbria, the romantic lakes, the Amalfi Coast, Imperial Rome…the seaside resorts, the islands, the history, the music, the food, the people. Ah, to be in Italy right now!
