Sorry, nothing in cart.
Thanks to Giuliano I was introduced to the professional and personal life of Alda Merini.
Starting from Giuliano’s book “Testimonianze”, which puts together memories of personalities who knew the poetess in life, we’ve worked together on a project to remember and express her themes and values.
Alda Merini was nominated to the literature’s Nobel prize and is considered the Italian Poetess of the 1900s. Who knows her writings and poems is aware of her value; our initiative aimed to create a new and unique project to pass her memory in a different way:
we think that matching an artistic image to one of the poetess aphorism, printing them on a t-shirt that everyone can wear, sharing its message and passing it also to people that don’t know who Alda Merini was, is a way to remember her and, we hope, to incite those who haven’t yet, to read her poems and books .
Giuliano Grittini was born and grown up in Milan, where he attended the School of Graphic Design and had the opportunity to develop his skills especially in printing of author’s books. He collaborates with important Italian and international artists like Baj, Fiume, Sassu, Guttuso, Scanavino, Tadini, Warhol, Vasarely and depicting them by pictures at different times of their artistic activity.
His photographs and artworks have been published by Rizzoli, Bompiani, Frassinelli, L’Espresso, Panorama, Corriere della Sera, La Stampa, L’Unità and participated in several solo and group exhibitions.
One of his favorite icon is undoubtedly the famous italian poetess Alda Merini. He dediactes her many photographs in the book “Faults of images.”
The artist is still operating in the arts, he produces his artworks in his own press house in Corbetta near Milan.
