note
In my heart I dedicate this project to Roberto Sambonet, one of my greatest mentors of graphic design.
I will never forget his precious direction while designing the ads and the cover for the book. He seemed fine to me and it was impossible not to be touched by his natural sparkling energy. But after a few days he suddenly went into the hospital and died.
Thank you Roberto for your precious teaching and friendly spirit.
