ALDO NOVARESE
BY TOMMASO TROJANI
FOR POLITECNICO DI MILANO
Laid out as a publishing document, the primary objective of the thesis is an in-depth study and rebuttal of information provided by existing texts relating to professional events in the life of the designer Aldo Novarese who was artistic director of the Nebiolo Type Foundry in Turin from 1952 to 1972. The author’s critical investigation starts with an observation and study of original sources that are part of Novarese’s legacy including signed artifacts, personal correspondence with colleagues and clients and other thus far unpublished materials now preserved in archives, foundations, or held by former Nebiolo employees. The thesis is accompanied by a cataloguing (and a historical, critical and formal explanation) of fonts designed by Novarese between 1936 and 1990, supported by a large number of photographs.
