Tipografia. Conte Museum of Graphic Arts

A legendary Veronese address – a paper-design shop and museum of printing in one. A print shop has been on the premises since 1750, but it has belonged to the current owners, the Conte family, since 1933.

Honoured and held in high regard here, the ancient traditions of printing have been handed down from generation to generation – everything on view is one-of-a-kind and handmade: from 17th-century woodcut logos to 18th-century printing presses. Locals frequent the shop to commemorate special occasions, for example, to order wedding invitations or to purchase a unique birthday card for a dear friend.
