The Sporting Life In Italy Vintage Travel Poster, circa 1935. Framed Vintage Travel Poster

This poster is based on a booklet published by the ENIT (Italian State Tourist Department). The poster was designed by Corrado Mancioli. Mancioli was a lesser-know Italian graphic designer best known for sports images. He did a number of pieces for ENIT. See this link for another work by Mancioli: travel poster Sport Life in Italy Vintage Travel Poster, circa 1932.

Poster History:
The ENIT (Ente Nazionale Italiano per il Turismo or Italian State Tourist Department now the “Agenzia nazionale del turismo” was a major publisher of posters, brochures, booklets, magazines, advertisements, and postcards promoting travel to Italy. We should be thankful for this because the ENIT promoted numerous artists and graphic designers and published beautiful and well-designed campaigns that have stood the test of time and remain wonderful today. This poster is just one amazing example.

There are numerous books on the posters published by the ENIT in the 1920s and the 1930s. I have not yet found (though it might well exist) a good history in Italian or English on the artistic direction of the ENIT. Hiring designers was expensive and images created would be used in posters, brochures, and postcards. Because of this images used on posters would be used in many different types of media.

Make a statement in any room with this framed poster, printed on thick matte paper. The matte black frame that's made from wood from renewable forests adds an extra touch of class.
