Archivio Tipografico

Archivio Tipografico is a space that collects hundred of years of typographic materials and knowledge. The collection began in 2003, by the will of Emanuele mensa, a former typography teacher. Since the very beginning the concept of Archivio Tipografico was to create a proper traditional printshop rather than a museum. In the last years, thanks to the renewed interest in letterpress printing, many young students and graphic designers began collaborating and realizing personal projects using the huge collection of typefaces and machines.
Archivio Tipografico also does commercial works, from wedding sets to stationery to posters, composed with movable type or using photopolymer or zinc plates.
