In memory of Gianni Bortolotti



This edition of the Mexico Poter Biennale is being presented in memory of Gianni Bortolotti, an Italian graphic designer whose works have been selected by international poster biennials around the world.

Bortolotti was born in Bologna, Italy, where he studied at the Artistic Lyceum and the Academy of Fine Arts, besides studying architecture in Florence's University. In 1960 he started his professional career as a graphic designer, both in in Bologna and Milan, and in 1965 founded his own studio.  Bortolotti taught in Finalnd and in Los Angeles, California, in the United States. His works have been selected by international poster biennials in Mexico; Helsinki, Finland; Moscow, Russia; Colorado, United States, and Warsaw, Poland, in which he was the winner. Some of his posters are part of the Merrill Berman Collection and part of the Modern Art Museum, in New York, among other cultural institutions. He was a member of The Chartered Society of Designers of London. We are sorry about his death last 30 December 30, 2007.
