Suitable for all

The workshop, organized by Open Design School, is part of the presentation of the project 'Between the letters from Plovdiv to Matera' which investigates the story of the first Bulgarian typographer Iacov Kraykov through a photo exhibition of the artist Galina Yotova and a publication, both curated by Svetla Petkova.

The event includes a brief lesson conducted by Luisa Lapacciana* on the work of 'letter designers' and how fonts influence the way messages are conveyed, information is communicated and stories are told and a comparison with the artist and calligrapher Miroslav  Zhivkov and the world of the Cyrillic alphabet will be explored.

During the workshop you will have the opportunity to apply the acquired knowledge, learning typography and calligraphy techniques to produce personalized Cyrillic postcards, which will then be sent to the citizens of the twin European Capital of Culture.

In collaboration with the Bulgarian Institute of Culture in Rome and with the support of the Municipal Foundation Plovdiv 2019

Starting from May 12, an open studio will be set up with the photographer Galina Yotova, at the infopoint in Piazza San Francesco, during which you will be able to participate in a session of photographic portraits.
