Illustration for Scaglie, the magazine of Parmigiano Reggiano, celebrating Emilia-Romagna and its less known relationship with the world of fashion.

A wine label art I made for Italian wine producer Enoitalia. In 2016 they launched a series of limited edition products with the purpose of restyling some of their historical brands.
