Since 2014, the students from the first year of the School of Design of the Polytechnic in Milan (Scuola di Design Politecnico di Milano) have been involved in the editing of a series dedicated to communication designers of the 20th century, called designverso, conceived as a supplement to the magazine Multiverso, published by the University of Udine.

designverso-2019

In 2018 they published a monograph on Franco Grignani, whose title is 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).
