To mark the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy, the Associazione Dal Segno alla Scrittura di Torino calligraphed the Italian Constitution. This was “performed” live at the International Book Fair in Turin which took place last weekend.
The scroll measures 1.5 by 50 metres and took 5 days to complete.
Each article is calligraphed in an historic and personal style.
The scroll was sold at auction to help raise money for the restauration of ancient manuscripts conserved at the National Library / State Archives in Turin.
