The Galleria Gruppo Credito Valtellinese in Corso Magenta in Milan proposes a consistent homage to Franco Grignani. The purpose of Cristina Quadrio Curzio and Leo Guerra, commissioners for all this gallery’s exhibitions, with Manuela Grignani is to show Grignani’s complexity as an artist. He worked as an artist, but also as architect, photographer, graphic designer and art director: the exhibition intends to give a complete vision of all of these professional facets, documenting the peculiarities and different skills, all closely linked to Gringani’s research on visual perception.

For the big public, Grignani is generally associated with the Woolmark brand he created in 1964, perhaps the most and universally well-known mark in the history of communication of the second half of the last century. But that mark, even lucky, it’s just one of many other Grignani’s creations, the result of his specialization as artist and intellectual in deepening the perception and the “rules” behind images and communication.
