Puppo and the islands in the Gulf of Naples

Here is an anthology of manifestos by Mario Puppo (Levanto, 1905-Chiavari, 1970), a Ligurian designer who for many years worked on “touristic” illustrations (we have already mentioned him in two articles: one on theater posters and one on winter holidays in the mountains).

Now we present you a series of 1950s posters that he created for the Neapolitan Provincial Tourism Agency, featuring Capri, Procida and Ischia – three of the five beautiful islands in the Gulf of Naples (the other two being Nisida and Vivara).

Great examples of advertisement that has certainly stood the test of time.
