Giovanna Durì began working as an editorial graphic designer in 1979. In 1983 she joined Ferruccio Montanari’s studio where she worked on projects for national magazines and cultural periodicals. The studio looked after the image for publishers such as: Eri, Edizioni Rai, Fratelli Alinari, Firenze, Art’e Fotografia and others, as well as following graphic layouts for events and large national exhibitions.
In 1989 he founded the CDM studio with Laura Morandini, which initially also dealt with advertising graphics. In 1994 he started an activity called “Lavori Laterali” with Lorenzo Mattotti from which many national and foreign exhibitions were born. Since 2000, he has been mainly involved in publishing and coordinated image for cultural events. He edits and writes for catalogues and exhibitions that have illustration as their theme.
