    The Embassy of Italy in Washington, D.C. is currently hosting a photo exhibition on the design legacy of the Vignelli’s. The exhibition presents several of the most iconic designs of Massimo and Lella Vignelli, whose influence is worldwide. The opening was last Friday, and it included a lecture by Roger Remignton, Professor of Graphic Design at the Rochester Institute of Technology and a very good friend of both Vignellis, as well as a video by Letizia Airos of I-italy TV featuring an interview with Massimo Vignelli. Emanuele Amendola, Director of the Italian Cultural Institute of Washington D.C. and co-creator of the project – together with the Rochester Institute of Technology – gave an introduction on the importance and influence of the Vignellis.

    There’s an Italian hand behind the iconic designs of the New York and Washington subway maps and lettering, or the logos of companies like American Airlines and Bloomingdales: it is the hand of designers Massimo and Lella Vignelli. The Embassy of Italy in Washington, the Italian Cultural Institute and the Rochester Institute of Technology, celebrate the genius of the Vignellis in an exhibition opening on March 16 that will be on view until April 29, 2018. The opening event will include a lecture, among the others, by R. Roger Remington, Professor of Graphic Design at the Rochester Institute of Technology and a video-interview with Massimo Vignelli by the Editor in Chief of i-Italy, Letizia Airos introduced by Renato Miracco, Cultural Attaché of the Italian Embassy in Washington. We had the chance to talk with Emanuele Amendola, Director of the Italian Cultural Institute in DC, who shared with us his enthusiasm about the exhibition and the influence of the Vignellis on modern design.
