The Biennale Gherdëina was founded by Doris Ghetta in 2008 as a MANIFESTA 7 fringe event. Drawing inspiration from the spirit and intent of MANIFESTA 7 to raise the profile of Alto Adige as a region brimming with contemporary culture, since then the Biennale Gherdëina has proved one of the most successful events of its kind in Europe. Over the years it has grasped and supported MANIFESTA 7’s overall vision.
Finely combining Apoc (Blaze Type) and Founders Grotesk(Klim Type), the website of the biennale offers us a new typeface pairing to look at. While Apoc appears in a large size for headings, Founders Grotesk is used more discreetly in the website and only displayed for the long reading text and information. Also, we can notice a slight touch of blue – which gives a nice identity to the website.
