We publish a kind of graphical abstract of the Divina Commedia designed by Luciano Perondi and Angelo Monne. The design process was based on a simple synsemic model and the result is a clear (we guess) visual syntax.
Monne & Perondi choosed to use expressive illustration in order to create a visual relation between the overall image given by the text and the graphic schematization – otherwise it would have been a too cold kind of infographics.
The illustator involved, Angelo Monne, is a very talented illustrator, who used to work together with Giovanni Lussu, and for this reason was familiar with the idea of synsemia.
