Special project

Almanac N.4 Sanlorenzo Arts

“This is a narrative of Casa Sanlorenzo in print. As in prior years, we might perfectly well have produced an Almanac that talks about the sea, or voyages, or else one that talked about the creative, industrial, and manufacturing process – or else about a quasi-artistic corporate vision. This time we have chosen to present the transformation of the building that will become the museum devoted to Sanlorenzo Arts in Venice. Through photography by Andrea Garuti, Almanac IV provides documentation of the construction project still underway, as well as everything that happened when we cleaned up the building. We carefully documented the actual state of the empty, unfinished building, but even then its beauty was unmistakable” Piero Lissoni

Almanac N.3 SX Portrait

This year’s Almanac focusses on the SX line as narrated through two books.

“Portrait” resembles a family album that brings together the best pictures of the SX line realized by Federico Cedrone, Thomas Pagani, Tommaso Sartori and NoNoise. Inside the book is a special insert, a “Marine Lexicon”, where a selection of words linked to the sea and seafaring provide the inspiration for citations and anecdotes from Giovanna Zoboli, accompanied by illustrations from the hand of Lorenza Natarella.

“Manual” on the other hand, explores the SX project through sketches, material moodboards and technical drawings.


Almanac N.2 The Explorer

The second almanac of this special project by Lissoni Graphx for the Sanlorenzo focuses on the Explorer, the superyacht that knows no limits. This artbook for yacht owners examines the theme of exploration through the eyes of four photographers, each with very different styles - Andrea Garuti, Niv Rozemberg, Bastiaan Woudt and Giovanna Silva. The reader is taken on an imagined but possible voyage around the globe, passing through different cultures and taking in Reykjavík, Havana, Cape Town, Bali and New York along the way. The photos are accompanied by maps drawn by Lucia Disanza and stories by Massimo Scotti for each of the places featured. The photos of the Explorer models are by Guillaume Plisson.

Almanac N.1 Voyage

Art and the sea come together in this special project for Sanlorenzo Yacht consisting of a series of five almanacs published at yearly intervals and curated by Lissoni Graphx. The first, entitled Voyage, is a collection of five small books dedicated to the theme of travel, written by Giovanna Zoboli and illustrated by five Italian artists: Sandro Fabbri, Giordano Poloni, Guido Scarabottolo, Antonio Marinoni and the photographer Silvano Pupella.
