Bella Italia Tin

Hello Mary Kate, hello class!

After thinking about the project quite a bit, I finally decided to go for... ta-ta-taaaan: an Italian vintage map tin (Bella Italia Tin)! Yey! (Why you may ask? Coz I'm Italian :p. And it could be a creative chance to also refresh my geography skills :p). 

As for the inspiration, I went with a book I recently bought and realized it is also included in the booklist suggested: it is Antique Packaging by Josep Garrofe. Useful book. I tried to focus on the pages because the vintage packaging found on pinterest & google images is quite recurring, so I needed something different.

Here is my INSPIRATION board and the whys: 

In my Bella Italia Tin, I would like to include 20 small posters: one for each Italian region. These would have the region illustrated on them and would include the top places to visit and things to do in said regions. The tin itself could also be used for other purposes. Practical and useful packaging. It should have a fancy/humoristic look, also inspired by those vintage touristic posters. And to give it an authentic feel, the packaging will be bilingual: one side Italian, one side English.  

Here's my BRAINSTORMING with all the details:

MOODBOARD coming soon. What do you think so far, guys? :)
