Part of a Master’s degree thesis on three private archives in Matera which have recently been recognized by the Ministero dei Beni Culturali as historically and culturally significant.
This work aims not only at researching the material within the archives, but also at finding engaging ways to communicate and divulge
it to a larger public through the means of graphic design.
This part of the project envisions a series of folding booklets that draw from the archival materials to tell stories about Matera and its cultural heritage. The series is meant to be visually coherent while also calling for variation with respect to each archive of origin.
