Who is Venezia Stampa
Luca Valonta and Michele Costantini, both Venetians, founded Venezia Stampa, their company, in 1989, taking over an existing printing and graphics firm. They are located in the heart of Venice and where the art of printing started, with Aldo Manuzio.
We will meet Luca and Michele and discover everything about the art of printing, this ancient craft that in Venice found its apex. Did you know that In the first half of the sixteenth century, Venice produced almost half of the books printed in Italy, and was the most important European center of printed books? Theirs is a typical artisan typography operating in the historic center of Venice with letterpress printing methods (with lead and cliché characters), lithographic (with photomechanically engraved plates) up to the modern digital type.
