Posters of Inventions Italy Has Given the World


As we noted with our recent travel guide to San Francisco’s Italian cultural heritage, we’re suckers for Italian culture here at Flavorpill — if nothing else, we probably drink enough espresso to qualify for some sort of surrogate citizenship arrangement. So it was that we were rather amused and gratified to come across this series of hand-drawn posters of great inventions that Italy has given the world — even if, um, there’s only four of them. It’s quality not quantity, eh? Anyway, the posters are the work of Edinburgh-based Italophile and graphic designer Emily Isles — check them out after the jump, and also be sure to head on over to her website to check out some of her other work.
