CIRCOLO ARCI RADIO AUT PAVIA
Circolo ARCI Radio Aut is a non-profit cultural association operating in a social club run by volunteers. They are based in Pavia (Italy) and are part of the national network ARCI (Associazione Ricreativa Culturale Italiana). They organise musical and cultural events, also being politically active in the life of their university town. The name “Radio Aut” is a tribute to the original radio founded by Giuseppe “Peppino” Impastato, a Sicilian journalist and activist who fought for his entire life against the Mafia and was murdered because of that.
The 2018 is the 40th anniversary of his death and for this occasion we’ve been asked to create a new logo which could better represent the memory and connection with Peppino Impastato’s history and activism.
Driven by this request, our goal was to focus on the 3 main aspects of the association, trying to graphically fuse them in a unique and fresh concept:
– the face of Peppino Impastato;
– the Circle symbol (which means union, participation, cohesion, equality);
– the Red Star (reference to the ARCI logo and expression of left-wing cultural and political values).
