Vilnius – Design, “Communicating visually” – who was Bruno Munari?

Bruno Munari is considered to be one of the world’s most celebrated artist and designer of the twentieth century. Born in Milan on 24 October 1907, he was a sculptor, an illustrator, a graphic artist, a designer and a writer. “Travel Sculptures,” “Useless Machines,” “Unreadable Books” and “Talking Forks” are just a few of the amazing objects produced by his creative mind. The Italian  Institute of Culture in Vilnius (Universiteto g. 4 ) has organized a very special event celebrating Munari’s heritage. “Communicating visually” is scheduled to take place on 8 April at 4:30 p.m.  What is graphic art? Who is a designer? How does creative logics work? Mario Di Pasquale, a web designer and Eros Banchellini, a graphic designer, will attempt to address these and many other questions during the conference dedicated to the great Italian artist. “Design and visual communication” (Laterza, Bari, 1968), one of Munari’s most well-known books, will be discussed at the meeting along with some exercises he developed for his lectures. Bruno Munari evokes famous Italian companies such as Olivetti, La Rinascente, Pirelli and Campari, for which he made sketches, studies, drawings, posters and advertisements. He also worked for some publishing houses (Bompiani, Rizzoli, Zanichelli, Editori Riuniti and Corraini) from 1920 to 1970,  for which he produced graphic material and carried out his first experiments in the field of language. Munari died in Milan on 30 September 1998.
