Designer: Matteo Ragni
Circolo Filologico Milanese
Via Clerici, 10
Each PdiPigna notebook on show is interpreted by an artist or designer and together, under the creative direction of Matteo Ragni, they tell a story of evolution, of how times have changed throughout history right up to today. There are the hypnotic graphics of Gio Ponti, the simplified shapes of Enzo Mari with the iconic “Uno La Mela” and “Due La Pera” and a homage to Olivetti’s famous “Lettera 22” typewriter. There are the notebooks “Nero Oriente” (1948) and “Bella Copia” (1952) from Cartiere Pigna’s historic archive as well as the interpretation of Olimpia Zagnoli, one Italy’s most active young designers, famous for her signature pop style.
