The students from the School of Design of the Polytechnic in Milan have been involved in the drafting of a series dedicated to communication designers, called designverso.
In 2018 they published a monograph on Franco Grignani, a straightforward reference to one of his statements: “the time of reality has given me the time of the idea, another real“. («Once, Grignani is in New York, he is returning to Italy. He is in the taxi, and from the window, with his camera, he is shooting streets and skyscrapers. The photos are naturally ‘blurred’. “They are blurred – he says today – but for me, they still have a rational meaning. The time of reality has given me the time of the idea, another real.”» – from Franco Grignani, “Il segno come matrice. Il fenomeno come variabilità analitica”, presentazione di Giuseppe Turroni, 1978)
