Sagre parrochiali are small fairs held on an annual basis, to celebrate the parish’s titular saint, and to foster fraternal conviviality. Claudio Piccinini designed a poster for this year’s sagra of the Parrocchia di San Francesco in Modena. Italy.
The parish is dedicated to Saint Francis, so I found the innovative uncial shapes just fine for this occasion. And I liked how well Carmin paired with the paintings by José Benlliure y Gil (1855–1937), a masterful Spanish painter from the 19th century.
