Archivio Tipografico

Archivio Tipografico is an active and collaborative space for the preservation, the study and the practice of typographic arts.

The aims are to preserve, to keep alive and to reinvent in a contemporary way the craftsmanship knowledge for movable types composition and high quality letterpress printing.

Archivio Tipografico was born in 2003 as a private collection of materials from several closing northern Italy print-shops. Today it counts 2.000 fonts of lead, wood and plastic movable types, a variety of functioning printing presses including platens and flatbeds, and several typographic tools of every kind.

A time-suspended place with two main goals: to preserve the tradition of high quality letterpress printing and the craftsmanship of the graphic arts; and to be among the most important Italian active studio devoted to the “Letterpress Revival“ movement.

It’s a collaborative working space, where new and old generation of printers, typographers and designers meet to develop artistic and commercial printing projects.
