AIAP, the Italian Association for Visual Communication
AIAP started in 1945 inside the FIP and was known as ATAP (Association of Artist and Technical Professionals for Advertishing); since this time a better understanding of the aim of Association and a more mature definition of the professional mission of the associates has been gained.

In 1995 following the growth process ATAP changes its definition to AIAP (Italian Association of Advertishing Artists); the AIAP associates will be aimed to a different mission than advertishing professionals. AIAP has the mission to foster, promote and disseminate the profession and the discipline of the graphic design.
Association is accepted, with different and separate enrolling modalities, of all individuals involved in the graphic design and visual communication by professional activity or by study and academic research.

At the present, AIAP has chapters in all the Italian country, and accounts for more than 800 members professionals operating in the field of the visual communication.
