Franco Grignani (1908-1999) was one of the most important gures in twentieth-century visual communication. This catalogue of the exhibition devoted to him at the m.a.x. museo in Chiasso records the complexity of his achievements and his research into the subject of multi-sensoriality. The exhibition layout and documentary inquiry explore his work in the three main elds of photography, graphic design and art. Through research conducted at the family archives, speci c holdings in the Museo di Fotogra a Contemporanea – MUFOCO based in Cinisello Balsamo (Milan) and the Associazione Italiana Design della Comunicazione Visiva – AIAP, as well as among important Italian and Swiss private art collections, it is now possible to reconstruct the fundamental stages in Franco Grignani’s artistic experimentation.
