Fine arts made by Massimo Dolcini are the undisputed forerunner of sustainable designing: graphic for awareness in communication. A complete retrospective exhibition.
Fine arts and his Massimo Dolcini were main protagonist of the Italian visual communication and also an unrivalled teacher at the ISIA in Urbino, Italy (link).
Complete retrospective exhibition curated by Mario Piazza and actively supported by the Gruppo Credito Valtellinese: all the exhibit information (link).
Unwearied workshop of ideas that from fine arts become active graphic art, socially useful:
- Dolcini communicates with citizens through his posters displayed everyday on the City walls, involving people in the public administration.
- The favourable economic climate helped translating the idea of the figure of a craftsman-designer into a communication business.
“Dolcini’s mark is deeply sensitive to the change in social courses, the ever-changing consensus regarding institutions, the social and political involvement plan.” Mario Piazza (link)
Dolcini would have certainly agreed
That inclination to do things that we all share, teaches us to govern ourselves and get in touch with other people dwelling on a common ground. Richard Sennett
One day at Novilara, Michele Provinciali told me: “Massimo, a graphic designer is really at the top when he forgets about graphics”. I always liked his clear and mysterious statement. It took me a long time and a considerable effort to understand it completely. Massimo Dolcini, 1999
Massimo stands for awareness in graphic arts for people as well as for the environment, as explained in the first article/manifesto of this blog: ”All designer for a sustainable future” (link).
Today, Massimo Dolcini’s arts record is more alive than ever thanks to the complete collection of his serigraphy posters: http://archivio.massimodolcini.it
