We have produced an illustrated catalogue for Senza Parole [Speechless], a travelling bibliographic exhibition, comprised of silent books and silent animated shorts from different parts of the world.
How. We planned the exhibition and illustrated catalogue, which includes a bibliography and a filmography as well as contributions from experts and operation sheets.
What. Staging design, graphic design and catalogue page layout, archi-graphics and coordinated image.
Client. Cooperativa Culturale Giannino Stoppani, Bologna (IT).
The exhibition project, curated by Cooperativa Culturale Giannino Stoppani, was originally the idea of the group “Un sorriso un libro per Silvia” [a smile, a book for Silvia], in memory of the librarian Silvia Agnelli and her profound sense of responsibility and care for the present, in particular towards children. Senza Parole draws inspiration from the values supported by IBBY (International Board on Books for Young People) and in particular from the international project “Libri senza parole. Dal mondo a Lampedusa e ritorno” [Books without words. From the world to Lampedusa and back], promoted by Ibby Italy.
The exhibition, inaugurated on 17 February 2018 at the Municipal Hall of San Zeno Naviglio, Italy, will visit the libraries of Rezzato, Montichiari, Sirmione, Nuvolento and Botticino.
