massimo vignelli, 1931-2014

I came from Sardinia, an island in the Mediterranean. It was one of those extraordinary workshop weeks at the Armando Milani’s Moulin, in Provence. Massimo and Lella Vignelli, Armando and Cynthia Milani, Roger Remington: what a team of Masters. Massimo was very kind with me, a no-longer-young designer coming from the province. One year after we met in New York. He was already ill, and even if he was just back home from the hospital, he accepted to meet me and the students from Cagliari University. The eyes of that smiling falcon have been with me ever after, in all things that I tried to do as a designer. Thank you, Massimo.
