Nizzoli, who was an architect by training and considered one of the first Italian industrial designers (working for Olivetti), began his advertising career with the Maga agency in 1924. He was a bold artist with a strong sense of composition. Campari, a company with a long tradition of commissioning great artists, employed Nizzoli to design two posters. They are both neo-cubist still lifes, with the bottle represented in majesty. This is the larger version. Nizzoli p. 11, Weill 276, Bolaffi p. 160, Menegazzi p. 171, Crouse p. 191.
