Diulgheroff, who was born in Bulgaria, studied in Vienna and at the Bauhaus in Germany before moving to Italy in 1926. Settling in Turin, he studied architecture and became an important member of the second generation of Italian Futurists. Primarily a painter, architect and ceramist, he also created some exceptional graphic design. This is one of the few posters he designed, promoting rail service throughout Italy's beautiful Canavese region and the mountains of the Gran Paradiso National Park. Diulgheroff's captivating design strives towards the Futurist ideal of typographically "obliterating any semblance of classical symmetry on the printed page" (Euro Deco p. 94). Bolaffi p. 81, Manifesti Italiani p. 113, Euro Deco p. 167.
