The Barbican is hosting an exhibition of advertising art from the Campari brand dating back to the early 20th century. The touring exhibition is at the Osteria restaurant until the end of the year. The nine adverts range from a Post-Cubist poster by Marcello Nizzoli to work by Futurist painter Fortunato Depero and Leonetto Cappiello, a key figure in poster design who created the 1921 Spiritello advert. A print of Graphic Declination of the Name Campari (1964) by Bruno Munari is also on display. It was created for the inauguration of Milan’s first metropolitan line and is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Osteria’s Negroni cocktails are designed to complement the art.
