    “Antologia di cultura grafica” is the new series dedicated to the history of visual communication. Edited by Alessandro Colizzi and Silvia Sfligiotti, assisted from time to time by one or more guest editors, the series offers a series of volumes, organized around a theme or era, and includes a rich anthology of texts (articles, essays, chapters, excerpts, posters) translated into Italian and introduced by an essay by the editors.

    “Countercultures,” the second volume, contains twenty-five texts and forty-eight color images on the editorial and communicative production of groups and movements active in the political and artistic spheres that have played an essential, though not always recognized, role in the history of visual communication, giving rise to languages of rupture, bearers of alternative visions of society.

    The selected texts and images testify to the birth and spread of ideas, forms of expression and techniques that have made visible some important countercultural movements since World War II, from Situationist détournement to subvertising, from pacifism to environmentalism, from feminism to gender and ethnic minority claims, from the psychedelic revolution to the sexual revolution, from punk provocations to the visual research of underground magazines and Soviet-era samizdats.

    The resulting picture shows how the practical and theoretical action of countercultures, often addressing issues that are still relevant today for the first time, helped change not only visual languages but the very way of doing graphic art, both in approach and style.

    “Antologia di cultura grafica” is the new series dedicated to the history of visual communication.

    “La questione moderna in Europa”, first volume of the series, addresses the graphic debate within the modern movement of the interwar years, with an expanded look at the European continent to include authors from cultures and national histories hitherto neglected by historiography. 

    Far from being a unified phenomenon, the modern movement was characterized by a plurality of manifestations and the presence of very different theoretical positions. In particular, modernist graphics was the result of a process of negotiation between actors belonging to different national contexts. Moreover, actors from multiple disciplinary fields participated in its formation: advertising, publishing, architecture, photography, journalism, and the printing industry. 

    This anthology reflects the variety of orientations and opinions expressed both within individual national events and by the different personalities involved, who interpreted the ideology of the modern in ways and forms as heterogeneous as ever. The panorama that emerges is decidedly more nuanced and hybrid than has appeared in existing publications to date, and allows us to grasp the phenomenon in its theoretical, aesthetic, technological and social complexity.
