    Pearls of Wisdom is  an installation by Studio Kmzero + ZetaFonts (Debora Manetti, Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini, Francesco Canovaro + Barbara Giardelli, Marco Pezzoni e Enrico Ausiello) with Simone Massoni (SketchThisOut), Ilaria Falorsi, Jonathan Calugi (HappyLoversTown), Leonardo Betti (LeonardoWorx), Federico Landini (I depend on me), Riccardo Sabatini e Linda Cavallini (Lia).

    What better way to envision the concept of “glocal” than choosing the lovely florentine hills as a backdrop for a graduation show of the students of the Master in Communication Design

    of mixing local and global, by inviting a selection of tuscan visual artists and illustrators to visualize quotations from influential personalities of worldwide communication design.

    The result will be available in art capsules, contained in the vending machine “Pearls of Wisdom”
    that will be active during the event, next to an installation of generative graphics, in which quotations
    are interpreted using fonts from the digital foundry ZetaFonts (

    And this is my personal submission (Riccardo).
