poster for Emiliano Ponzi and Olimpia Zagnoli “Una Storia Americana”

This event has ended.

The Italian Cultural Institute presents the exhibition Una Storia Americana, which will focus on a selection of works produced in the last five years by the two Italian illustrators Emiliano Ponzi and Olimpia Zagnoli.

These artists are two of the most well-known Italian illustrators in the United States. Their work has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, MTA Transit, New York Magazine, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Newsweek, Penguin Books, Time Out New York and Washington Post, and other important advertising companies, magazines, books and newspapers.

Their style is distinct and original; Ponzi’s lyrical images are characterized by delicate colors and conceptual metaphors, while Zagnoli’s illustrations are identifiable for their soft and boldly colored shapes.

Corraini Editore will publish a catalogue with interviews by Steven Guarnaccia and Paul Backley made expressly for the exhibit. The exhibition and the catalogue are curated by Melania Gazzotti.



from January 29, 2016 to March 11, 2016
In conjunction with the exhibition, Emiliano Ponzi and Olimpia Zangoli will give a presentation at the Society of Illustrators in New York on January 27th at 6:30 pm. The lecture will be moderated by the illustrator Josh Cochran.

Opening Reception on 2016-01-29 from 18:00 to 20:00
