Celebrating an inventive printer
Gutenberg's invention of the movable type in 1455 revolutionized the art of printing and resulted in the upsurge of printers in Venice. Aldus Manutius, founder of the Aldine Press, presented the voluminous manuscripts of the classical Greek and Latin authors in the form of portable manuals. He experimented with new book designs and Greek and Roman typefaces. The Aldine Press released 908 works. The volumes printed between 1495 and 1498 are rare, including Virgil's Aenid printed in 1501.

The video combines interviews with Italian designers describing the influence of their country on their work with scenic footages of Italy.
