the first European festival on creativity

2018 Program

Event #27

Giuseppe Antonelli, Francesca Biasetton

Handwriting history 

Building a community means conquering a common language – especially a written language, considering our history. Italian language was built not only by our greatest writers, but also by ordinary people who needed to communicate and started to write as best as they could. During the years, the tools we used to write changed, and consequently the shape of the letters changed too. In a time when we all speak and write in Italian, what we miss is the individuality of handwriting. In the digital era, are we still capable of leaving a trace?
