Santo Stefano d’Aveto

Original vintage poster

97 x 68 cm

Produced circa 1955 for Italian Railways.

Mario Puppo’s poster advertising the Italian ski resort of Santo Stefano d’Aveto. The figure of a skier reaches upward in triumph; behind her, a vintage ski lift makes its way up the mountain and a blue-clad skier tackles the piste.

Mario Puppo was born in Levanto, Italy, and worked in a studio in Chiavari. He designed leaflets advertising skiing and beach resorts, which gained popularity in the 1930s. By the 1940s his poster designs were being featured in the Milan Advertising Graphics show. Throughout the 1940s he designed covers for catalogues, leaflets, playbills, music scores and records, as well as producing more travel posters for public and private Italian companies.
