The Last Days of Print Culture: Raffone in Naples


Date: Sep 24, 2009 - Dec 16, 2009

The European Institute’s 2009 fall reception introduces Mario Raffone, owner and director of a century-old family typography located in the heart of Naples. Over the last two decades, the firm has been grappling with what Raffone calls “the end of Gutenberg”. Presenting visual material and artifacts from <i<Stampa et Ars Mario Raffone, the exhibition frames the decline of the culture of print in terms of the world of a single master craftsman, his workers and clients, his neighborhood and city.

Exhibition curated by Victoria de Grazia and Nancy Goldring
