Dear Typophiles,

I've followed this forum for a long time but this is my first post, so hello to all! :)
I write this because I really need someone that can help me to find an old Nebiolo Specimen which contains Forma typeface. I'm a young student and I need it for my bachelor's degree. Do someone have a specimen containing that typeface? If someone do have that, can you please scan some pages for me?

I'll be very thankful, for every image or tips.

Thank you,


I am currently working on a project to identify a kind or style of typography that is used for a specific application or has a cultural association. I am working with the use of interlocking or connecting letterforms and scripts that often appear in Italian industrial design but specifically on espresso machines.

Hello, this is a street name in Venice in 1890. I'm looking for some informations about it. I would like to know what kind of type is, or what typeface is like to. I think that letters were painted with stencils.
Thank you very much.

Il Sole 24 Ore typeface

Does anybody know which typeface is this?


I need help identifying this font


Hello. First post here on Typophile!
I'm looking for a versatile script font that is feels Italian (maybe a little handwritten, but not brushed). While that doesn't seem too bad add the additional asks of: bold, skewing towards modern and non-rustic. Eventually, this will be seen in print and broadcast.


Hi, I have a gig coming up in Rome...the last time I was there, one of my colleagues had some super-nice calling cards engraved at a famous, old printing/engraving place...she said it's called Barberieni, and it's located close to the House of State...

I've looked and googled everywhere and cannot find anything about it online, which seems to be not uncommon for Italian places of commerce ;)

Any Roman designers here (or designers who know Rome) who may know more about this place and where they are located, exactly?


Hello everyone!
We are a group of students doing a visual identity project about Como, Italy. We need font suggestions for the logo of the city we created: it should be sans serif and possibly coherent with the different identities of Como (romanesque decoration, rationalist movement of Terragni, liberty-inspired elegance). Attached some images of reference.
We were thinking of Neutraface because of its geometry matching that of our logo, but it turned out to be a predictable choice and the result was too "fascist".

Thank you very much for your help.

ISIA Urbino Type Design Week is a one week intense course which will take place the last week of July at ISIA (High Institute for Applied Arts), in the Renaissance city of Urbino in Italy.

For one week the students will be guided by proven professionals in the development of an individual type design/lettering project. An interesting programme of lectures will provide the participants with background information addressing discourses and techniques of type design and the design of letters as a critical design process.

Dalton Maag's crew will be the leading team for 2011. Bruno Maag, together with Jonathan Pierini are looking forward to working hard with you in a studio-like environment.

Greater Albion Typefounders have just released tow new Typefaces on Fontspring and Myfonts:

Bertolessi, is a Roman face made fun, with a healthy dose of filigree curves thrown into the mix. It's an ideal compliment to our extensive Bertoni family, but can be used anywhere a bit of humour and flair is required.

I would just like to say I really enjoy the font on the 2010 Italian team's World Cup jersey's used for the player names. Nice work Puma.

Example here

I'm trying to figure out who did the typography for the Italian national football team jerseys of 2010-2012. Puma seems to be responsible for the jerseys but who did the type? Do you know?

Here's a photo of the jersey:

Anyone recognize this DIN/Interstate-meets-Garage-like typeface? It appears in "A World of Presidia" by Slow Food Editore (Italy, 2005) paired with Frutiger.

Thanks for your help!
