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.


Having previously published two monographs on Franco Grignani, at the end of the 2020/21 academic year, they released a study on Jeanne Grignani, a first attempt at research on an artist who, in 1954, was declared by Antonio Boggeri to be “ubiquitous in the fashion journals“…

Starting from the premises of a recent minor exhibition called ‘PINK. Representations of women and women graphic designers‘, and with some drawings unpublished up to now (credits to Daniela Grignani), the text proposals chosen by the students and their professors are partly in Italian and partly in English, including my post dedicated to Jeanne and a final interview with me (ITA only).

[this monograph has been edited by the School of Design of the Polytechnic in Milan thanks to the precious mutual cooperation especially with Ludovica Villani, but also with Benedetta Anna Maria Ricciardi and Luca Pedroni, students of the first academic year]
