Benedetta Bovani – Acquerino
Diploma project with Marie Lusa, Kai Bernau
Acquerino is a family project that revolves around the Acquerino Nature Reserve in Tuscany, Italy. Growing up near the place, the idea for this project was born out of the curiosity and affection that both me and my brother have for it. We felt the need to create something that reflected our thoughts and emotions about such a place while at the same time letting people know about it. Bringing together our knowledge, memories and skills we designed two books. The first book is a travel guide that aims to inform the reader about the reserve: from the flora to the fauna, hiking itineraries and nearby villages. The second one is an album where we collected words and photographs that reflect on the value of nature and of memory. Two specific typefaces were also designed for the books.
