Moody Dioramas & Letterpress Promos

I am a big fan of miniature and moody scenic design. In these wonderfully crafted dioramas, Paolo Ventura creates scenes for an unwritten story he was told in his childhood: L’Automa recreates Venice in the winter of 1942, the set for a story of a man who creates a robot to fight his loneliness after town Jews are sent away.

For part of the show’s promotion, the artist worked with a letterpress artist to create a vintage-style poster suiting the style of the diorama and the tale.

In the video, Paolo speaks of winter as a major player in his creations.
