Circonferenze 2030 is a cycle of 9 meetings on graphic design with established AIAP professionals in the sector of italian graphic design system.
Circonferenze 2030 is a didactic project with the triangulation of 3 institutions: Ababo, Aiap and Unibo.
Curated by Danilo Danisi and Fabiana Ielacqua, at the end of which the students of Ababo and Unibo are asked to create a thematic poster 50×70 cm on the theme of the day. (project challenges)
These “project challenges” and the entire cycle of meetings proposed a link between the Culture of Graphic Design and the 5Ps of ONU Agenda 2030: People, Prosperity, Peace, Partnership, Planet.

Every Friday from 22 October to 17 December 2021, from 16.00 to 18.00, professionals and AIAP professionals illustrated how the graphic design contributed to development of People and the Planet and through projects and case studies also showing how to activate and contribute to the creation of virtuous Partnerships and actions of Prosperity and Peace. In perfect line with the 5Ps and with what was declared by the UN in Agenda 2030, the series of meetings is a tangible testimony of the fact that Culture of the Project can really improve the quality of life of the communities.

The designers and the studios involved in the project are:
Francesco E. Guida, ChiaLab, Armando Milani, Studio Obelo, Officina Typo, Cristina Chiappini + Cristiana Scoppa, Stefano Guerrini, Ester Manitto, Jonathan Pierini.
Curated and edited by Danilo Danisi and Fabiana Ielacqua.
A further thanks goes to my colleague Erica Preli for the co-organization of two meetings.
