Tuesday’s ad is for Birra Venezia, from 1913, though at least one source says 1920. From the late 1800s until the 1960s, poster art really came into its own, and in Europe a lot of really cool posters, many of them for breweries, were produced. This poster is for Birra Venezia, which was founded in Venice, Italy as early as 1835, though under a different name. In 1908 it became Birra San Marco, but in 1913 changed its name again to Birra Venezia. The artist who created this poster is Alfonso Gabbi, but I’ve been unable to find any information about him.
