"It happens that is more difficulty to find an old manifesto that an incunabolo, because the incunaboli were printed to limited circulation but they almost all came preserved; the manifestos were printed in big copy but they almost all came destroyed" (Dino Villani in "Manifesti di tutto il mondo" - Milano, 1964)

This series is takeable to the '20s and '30s which correspond to the period of second Italian belle époque; they come from a milanese printing house which as active in the first of the twentieth century.The format (about 30 x 50 cm ) is that of the affichette (poster of covered reduced format suitable for being affix in cover ambient). Conservation state is any way true cromolitografie of epoch, whose, to part some marginal fault, can be defined really excellent. Properly speaking they cannot define true posters because they are missing of advertising inscription; their most appropriate denomination is advertising prints.
