This year the theme of the event “I libri aiutano a leggere il mondo” (The books help to read the world) as always perfectly organized by Laura Pisu and the Associazione Malik, was entitled “La vita, per esempio” (Life, for example). Stories of exemplary lives, and often little-known of some of the protagonists of international culture. I designed this poster in which the index of a hand shows the life line of another hand – not of the same person, as you can see.
Two more posters for the Teatro Lirico di Cagliari. The first is Tosca by Giacomo Puccini. I represented the suicide of Tosca at dawn from the walls of Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, such as the fall of the angel who stands on the rampart. The sword that follows the fall has the size of a dagger, one with which is killed Scarpia. The second is for La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi. The violet, whose name is the same of the main character who dies of tuberculosis, shows ribs which intertwine to draw the lungs.
