Ep.16 | Grafica – ENG
A production of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and storielibere.fm, in partnership with cultural association Monteverdelegge
How is the cover of a book created? How is it made up into pages? What is the relationship between the graphic designer and the publishing house? And, in general, what are editorial graphics?
Leafing through the Alfabeto Italiano, the page opens at letter G, G for Graphics. A recent word, in use for around a hundred years, or even less, but that corresponds to a fundamental, even though sometimes neglected, aspect when talking about books.
With Silvana Amato and Giacomo Callo.
ALFABETO ITALIANO ENG
Of Maria Teresa Carbone
A production of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and storielibere.fm, in collaboration with cultural association Monteverdelegge
How does the world of books operate today? What does the work of a publishing house consist of? And how do Italian publishers look abroad? Alfabeto Italiano, the podcast made by Storielibere for the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, tells the story of publishing in Italy in 24 words, from A to Z. This journey to discovery the passionate work hidden behind every book is conducted by Maria Teresa Carbone, author, journalist and translator, who meets the heads of publishing houses, booksellers and communicators, graphic designers and translators, teachers and illustrators: an ideal journey towards two events where Italians will be to the fore, the Salon du Livre de Paris 2023 and the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2024.
