In the extensive field of graphic design there are specialized areas, such as the type design, which require a long, careful and meticulous work, not always recognized and appreciated in an appropriate way both economically and professionally, especially in countries like Italy, which don’t have a special typographical culture, unfortunately accompanied by a short memory. Yet in our country, which is the cradle of Latin characters, there were some great names that marked as milestones the history of typography all over the world. Among these, Francesco Griffo in '500 designed a character which then was used for the layout of paperback books, printed in Venice by Aldo Manunza.
