  • Tipoteca Italiana


    (0 reviews)

    Tipoteca Italiana was established in 1995 to preserve and foster the arts of letterpress printing and handset typography. Its goal is to highlight the rich history and significant contributions of Italian type designers from the earliest days of printing, through the Industrial Revolution, to the present time.

    Tipoteca houses not only an extraordinary collection of metal and hand-cut wood typefaces, but also maintains an archive, a printing museum, a functioning print studio, and an extensive library—all in one efficiently designed, multipurpose building.

    Tipoteca is housed on the premises of the Canapificio Veneto, next to the Brentella canal. Built at the end of 19th century, the Canapificio was a hemp mill and today is a significant historical site, and provides an excellent example of the traditional importance of industry in this region of Italy. Tipoteca’s showrooms are in the former St. Teresa church, built in 1886, and in the adjacent workers premises.

    Started: 1995

    3 Via Canapificio, Cornuda, Veneto, 31041, Italy
