Montagna LTD

? **PRESENTATION OF THE FONT**

You can say hello to the font that inaugurates a **series** of upcoming production entirely *inspired by the Italian historical culture* that meets different *styles and artistic inspirations*. **Montagna LTD** tells in a *single graphic expression* the **decorativism of Stile Liberty** and the **functionality of humanistic writing**.

? **THE LIBERTY INSPIRATION**

The Montagna LTD font has an ancient soul inspired by the **Stile Liberty** that we can find in the **details of the terminal traits** and in the **composure of the forms**. With the term *"Liberty"* we mean an artistic movement that, especially in the *late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries*, concerned mainly architecture and applied arts. The cultural aesthetic phenomenon of the so-called Arte Nuova, was also called "floral" for the taste of biological, natural and phytomorphic forms.

?? **A TRIBUTE TO ITALY**

The historical aspect strongly characterizes the fonts belonging to this series, and Montagna LTD is a **tribute to Italy of the early twentieth century**. And there is an artist who remembers this font very much in his works: it is **Leopoldo Metlicovitz**, *painter, illustrator, scenographer and Italian publicist*. One of his most famous posters is the theatrical representation *"Cabiria"* by *Gabriele D'Annunzio*. The Montagna LTD font therefore has the **mood** of an **ancient Italy**, revised for a **modern and international use**.

? **THE FUNCTIONALITY OF HUMANISTIC CHARACTERS**

The *structure of the font is revised and simplified* according to the humanist style that makes it current, functional and **easy to read**. This group of characters is based on the humanistic writing of the *fifteenth century manuscripts*, as opposed to the Gothic one used by Gutenberg for the first printing with movable characters around 1450.
The humanistic calligraphy, rounder and wider, was obtained with a wide nib, which allowed for greater plasticity. Nowadays, the humanistic fonts, precisely because they are inspired by this classic writing with a big and slanted nib, keep the fundamental characters in the history of the font design, remembering the handwriting.
