Una Storia Americana Italian Cultural Institute, New York January 29, 2016 – March 11, 2016 Opening on January 29th, 6 pm "The Italian Cultural Institute is pleased to host 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."
