Silvano Campeggi, a small gallery

Yesterday we lost Silvano Campeggi, aka Nano, one of the greatest movie poster artists to have graced the field.
Born in Florence in 1923, Campeggi created many iconic Hollywood posters – and a measure of his staggering production can be gleaned from the fact that sixty-four of the movies for which he created posters were nominated for Oscars.
It’s been calculated that all in all, Nano Campeggi created theposters for a total of 3000 movies.

What follows is a small gallery of his work.
He will be missed.
