Parmigiano Caption

Design Concept

Parmigiano Typographic System (named after Parma, the city where Bodoni established his printing house) has the stated ambition to be the most extensive family of fonts ever to have been inspired by Giambattista Bodoni.

Parmigiano Caption was conceived to accompany Parmigiano Text for setting secondary texts such as captions and footnotes. Parmigiano Caption guarantees superb readability and consistent quality in print at sizes smaller than 10 points, completing the Parmigiano family and making it perfect for work with complex texts in several sizes.
