After a decade of quiescence Legacy of Letters is back with a new lettering tour of Italy. This time the tour, led by Paul Shaw and Alta Price, will bypass Rome and Florence and instead explore the Veneto and Emilia-Romagna regions. They are home to some of the most exciting, though lesser-known, lettering in a country rich in extraordinary lettering. The ten-day tour will go from Aquileia to Rimini with stops in Venice, Verona, Vicenza, Padua and Ravenna. Some of the sites to be visited will be San Marco and the Biblioteca Marciana in Venice, the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, the Villa Rotonda in Vicenza, the Scipione Maffei collection of Roman inscriptions in Verona, the Tipoteca in Cornuda, the Tempio Malatestiano in Rimini, and the mosaics of Sant’Apollinare in Classe.
