This project stems from the need of the Valle d'Aosta Region to have its own unique and easily recognizable typeface both for institutional and cultural communication. Graphic research into the typeface was entrusted to ISIA Urbino and carried by the Santa Chiara Officina, a design and development laboratory and workshop dedicated to public authorities and organizations with non-commercial purposes, which involves the interaction of teachers and tutors. In this case, the project was coordinated by Professor Luciano Perondi and the tutor Jonathan Pierini, together with students Luigi Bevilacqua, Arnaldo Filipinos and Viola Marinelli. The Vallée d'Aoste typeface has eleven versions, each consisting of six alphabets in various styles, and able to satisfy all the needs of the Regional Administration: from the monitor version to the version for publishing and signage. The graphic layout adopted is based on a careful study of a series of historical documents and local manuscripts - Augustine manuscripts, notarial deeds, liturgical texts, inscriptions and masonry etchings -, rationalized and reinterpreted in a new and modern style. The result is a completely original character which combines elements that are recognizable and traceable to the history of the Valle d'Aosta with the simplicity and immediacy needed for reading contemporary language.
