Luigi Castiglioni

Luigi Castiglioni

Milan, 1936 - 2003.
Painter and graphic designer, he studied and graduated from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in 1957. Set designer for the La Scala theatre, he collaborated with Federico Fellini on the scenes of La Dolce Vita. In 1960 he settled in Paris, where he began designing magazine covers. In 1972 he designed his first sports poster for an important boxing match, the debut of a long career in the world of posters. Since then, as well as for sport, Castiglioni will create posters for political events and humanitarian causes, cinema and theater posters, which will lead him to participate in the Salon, where he is awarded the Palme d'Or in 1994. His works are exhibited in museums in 12 countries and 150 cities.

Salone Internazionale dell'Umorismo

The event could not have lasted for over fifty years without the contribution of numerous "volunteers" and "precepts" who brought enthusiasm and desire to do whatever the task received, with nineteenth-century shifts! From the choice of the drawings, to the preparation of the panels (always the same every year), to the posting with various pins of the hundreds of drawings up to the presence on stage.

We therefore want to thank, in absolutely no order but with equal contributions, all those who come to mind, apologizing if we miss some, but we are ready to fix it!
