In regards to education, Alessandro strongly believes that knowledge is constructed by the learner through action—it is mediate, not immediate. Action initiated by the learner himself is the indispensable ingredient of the act of knowing, and art is with us to give structure to reality.
Hemingway™ designed by Alessandro Segalini was inspired by the prize winning novel The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Miller Hemingway. The typeface has been selected for the UK Creative Review Type Annual 2011 within the Display category.
