The Project

La Nazione is the oldest, still running newspaper in Italy. Its story is made of more than a million pages and five times that much articles, written by gentlemen like Carlo Collodi and Alessandro Manzoni, up to modern days most influential journalists.

Conveying that much information was a feat worth reckoning: one that has taken the Studio to new degrees in juxtaposing, laying out and illustrating.

The memorial book is more than 300 pages of clippings, insights, explanations and re-telling of Italy’s history, from conception to today.
