A Life: Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Beat Generation, Rebellion, Poetry is an exhibition in the Museo di Santa Giulia in Brescia, curated by Fabrica, highlighting the importance of the figure of Lawrence Ferlinghetti – American poet, painter, publisher, and cultural agitator with Brescian origins. The exhibition presents Ferlinghetti in the context of the literary scene of the 1950s and 1960s, and in particular within the Beat Generation movement.
The reason why I used Josefin Slab is not only its geometric typewriter style, but also a dynamic and tough feeling. To match with the idea of “type and explore”, I think it’s quite suitable to describe Mr. Ferlinghetti’s journey.
