tuttiSanti uses a “pop” view to reconsider the central figures of the religious tradition. It combines a thorough study of sacred iconography with very contemporary design and styling approaches.
The project aims to reflect on popular affection dynamics using a not necessarily devout key, more akin to the definition of “guardian angel”.
From the Latin ‘Sanctus’, past participle of ‘sanction’: to protect with sanction but also to establish by law (and therefore what is inviolable, sacred), holy is by definition the man or woman who stood for scoring the virtues of their faith during their existence.
How was tuttiSanti born?
The project is managed by FF3300, who were commissioned to create the 2013 poster for the Bari historical procession of St. Nicholas. The poster, edited by AIAP, and exhibited in the "Millennials/The new scene of the Italian graphic" at the Fabbrica del Vapore of Milan in November 2015.
Where does the iconography of tuttiSanti come from?
Each illustration is inspired by the ancinet Christian icons and reinterpretes its most characteristic symbol. For St Nicholas, the icon of reference comes form Russia, and dates back to the XVII century.
What tuttiSanti iconography means?
Through the figure of the Saint, tradition evokes stories of extraordinary women and men.
REGARDLESS OF DIFFERENT BELIEFS,
THIS PROJECT INTENDS TO CELEBRATE THE “EXCEPTIONALISM”
THAT CHARACTERIZES HUMAN BEINGS.
