About Franco Cervi : Franco Cervi was born in Milan in 1968. After taking a degree in Architecture at the Milan Polytechnic, he gained experience under the creative influence of Ettore Sottsass and Matteo Thun, with whom he worked steadily for many years before opening his own graphic design office in 2000. In 2006 he founded 279 Editions, an independent publishing house specializing in works of great formal refinement on contemporary art and avant-garde graphics: his personal creative research continues to evolve along this precise disciplinary borderline.
