Federico Seneca was definitely one of the masters of commercial graphics of the twentieth century. From his Art Nouveau posters for the seaside resort of Fano, his hometown, he moved closer to a Futurist vision and Art déco, then took his final step towards a modern synthesis of forms.
During his professional life Seneca collaborated with the most innovative companies of the time: Perugina, Buitoni, Rayon, Cinzano, Talmone, Stipel, Panettoni Sala, Salchi, Lane BBB, Agip and Ramazzotti.
Here is a rich and highly enjoyable heritage, with posters, graphics, signs, logos and beautiful plaster sculptural models, which served as the basis for the figures that animated his advertisements.
