Mundialito #2, Michele Galluzzo: Ciao Italia

Even if the Azzurri in 2018 are hopelessly out of world competitions, what keeps Italy always in the Olympus of the famous international tournament is without a doubt Ciao, the mascot of Italia 90. Constantly resurrected, criticized, praised, the tricolor pinocchio that summed up the “notti magiche” in the summer of 1990, is still in our hearts.

Beyond the three-dimensional mascot, the visual communication of the 1990 Italian World Cup was a field for experimenting new languages ​​and choral design methods with the help of technologies. The visual identity of the Italian world championship offers an unequivocal testimony of a historical moment of strong momentum, of optimism, of confidence in success and in unconditional progress of a nation.

With a compilation of unpublished images, video clips and interviews Michele Galluzzo talks about the visual identity project of the Italia 90 World Cup, highlighting its influence on the national and international visual, cultural and social panorama, contrasts and gray areas hidden behind inexpressive mascots, animated logos, virtual three-dimensional scenarios, behind Schillaci and Moroder.
