Fonderia Reggiani [Ergisto Reggiani]

Or Fonderia Tipografica Enrico Reggiani. Italian foundry in Milan, started by Enrico Reggiani in Milan in 1883. The business was taken over by his son Ergisto Reggiani (1888-1964). Reggiani published a bulletin in the 1930s entitled Tipografia (in which we find contributions of Edoardo Persico and the typographer Guido Modiano). It shows 44 very modernist typefaces, such as Reggiani, Macchina, Bodiniana, Jenson, Mascotte, Zaza, Mignon, Tosca, Manon, Mimi, Fedora, Butterfly, Fanciulla West, Turandot, Norma, Fornarina, Parisina, Isabeau, Fiammetta, Licia, Gioconda, Beatrice, Laura, Francesca, Asteria, Rosmunda, Minnie, Rossana, Mirandolina, Saida, D'Annunzio, Sansone, Nerone, Van Dyck, Olimpo, Olimpia, Olimpionica, Rubria, Ottocento, Pre Italica, Italia Nova, Era Nova, Vittoriale, Vittoriosa, Eia, Alala, Ardita, and Asse d'Acciao. Standout art deco designs included Ciclope and Mefistofele.

They published the avant-garde font Triennale in 1933, a typeface that set the tone for the institutionalized graphics imposed by the Italian fascists. Some of the posters of that era are here.

A scan of Campionario Caratteri da Stampa e per Contorno (Enrico Reggiani Foundry, Milan, 1937). See also Campionario Caratteri Fonderia Tipografica Enrico Reggiani (1937).

Digital revivals by Now Type (Lucas Franco and Claudio Rocha) include Ciclope and Mefistofele. TIF Balilla is a custom digital revival for Tipoteca Italiana Fondazione and not available for licensing. The original was Serie Balilla.
