I ‘Pulcini’ di Casiraghy. Tipografia e poesia

The city of Milan is one of the cores of Italian publishing. And so an exhibition of artist books seems almost obligatory. This time the occasion is a curious one, dedicated to the joy of savoir faire: the more than 200 volumes on exhibit, in fact, were all entirely crafted by the expert hands of Alberto Casiraghy, owner of the famous Pulcinoelefante publishing house. An extraordinary craftsman, despite the advent of new technologies, Alberto Casiraghy ​​stubbornly insists on making everything by hand in his home/studio in Osnago (LC): by hand, he cuts the fine ivory paper, hand sews the binding with needle and thread, composes by hand and prints the pages with movable type and a Nebiolo flat bed press. Each work is unique. They are small, light, playful masterpieces, where imagination is more important than technique. “I’m an alchemist”, says the smiling artist-craftsman, who has worked with such great poets and painters as Alda Merini, Andy Warhol, Gillo Dorfles, and Enrico Baj.
