Italian Graphic Design is a lecture that was given in 2017 to the students of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) of Hong Kong, on invitation of Professor Gianluca Cinquepalmi.

The lecture focused on sharing the understanding of graphic design in Italy, illustrating the fundamental stages in the history of Italian graphic design and typography, also showing aesthetic and cultural connections with the work of foreign designers.

The presentation starts from the 1930s, focusing in particular on 1933 as crucial year in the history of Italian graphic design, moving back and forth to discuss historical typography, 19th century poster art, modernism, and post-modern design.
