In the name of the Bolognese designer and entrepreneur Germano Gambini,
one can find the tradition of a family who have made optics their mission for over a century.
Through a book, we helped them tell their story.
On the occasion of the new GG collections, we were asked to design a monograph to retrace the history of the business, passed on a century long only in the recollection of the personnel.
For six months we had access to the business archive and worked on the selection and the cataloging of over 500 documents between photographs, collections of samples, and unreleased projects collected from 1912.
The challenge was to reconstruct the never-told story of the brand and restore the figure of Germano Gambini back into the firmament of the great pioneers of international fashion along with Cardin, Ferré, and Coveri.
