What can one possibly say after spending a few hours with some amazing artists at the Tipoteca in Cornuda (Treviso) ... nothing but GOOD things. Tipoteca is a Museum, Archive, Library, gallery, auditorium and much more. I would reccommend and encourage everyone to visit to this amazing place. Tipoteca’s archive houses iron hand-presses, cylinder and platen presses, printing and casting equipment. Despite the incredible value of this large collection of machines, their plus is the thousands of typefaces, matrices and punches in the archive. The place inspires scholars and enthusiasts who want to discover type design history by holding it in their hands, or to see their project printed with vintage typefaces..

Last week I had the great pleasure of re-meeting Don Luigi Ciotti (founder of the "Abele" and "Libera" groups) together with Don Luigi Tellatin, his great friend and "battlemate" for the past 27 years.

A vigil that, as always, tries to propose themes and ideas for thought centered on the horizons of Justice as underlined by Don Tellatin.

I certainly don't go to bed early like David "Noodles" Aaronson (De Niro in Once Upon a Time in America), but my opportunities to meet people "outside the box" have gradually diminished.

I WILL TELL YOU WHAT TO DO NEXT...

It seems odd to think that for centuries people fought for their personal FREEDOM and all the rights associated with it, constitutional rights. Today pretty much half of the HUMAN population, (approx. 3.9 billion souls) is fighting. People are confined in their homes due to the sudden "outbreak" of the so called "Corona Virus" or Covid-19, and to my (sad) surprise, willingly promoting through social media (among the many other means) the enforcement of stricter "rules" to "trample" the very constitutional rights that they fought for in the first place. At least until a month ago...

Ea Congrega del Tabaro

Posted on in News

How many of us are familiar with the term tabard? Who among adults and children has ever seen or even had the opportunity to wear one? Without necessarily being a psychic or a persuasive television commentator I arrogate to myself the right to say no one or at most someone whose hair has probably begun to thin out or become gray for years.
