During the 1968/1969 academic year, graphic designer Albe Steiner worked with graphic arts students in Urbino on a comprehensive project for the town which included a new logo, historic centre signage, and a local newspaper. The project had great symbolic and practical relevance, since it was the first time a design approach already widely implemented at the international level was adopted in Italy, most notably also in a local context. The congress “Graphic design and signage in a historic town centre 1969–2019” took it as a starting point to tackle a series of questions about life in historic centres today. This volume presents the findings and analyses generated by the congress.
