Strenna 2015 Graphic Artist

ArtistDesigning the poster for the Strenna of 2015, the year of the Bicentenary of the Birth of Don Bosco is a big responsibility. The task was entrusted to a young man called Luke Pontassuglia. Here are some of his reflections on the work.


How did you get the job?

The idea was to have a Strenna chosen "by young people for young people". For that reason it was decided to entrust the task to a young person like me. During a visit to the Salesians in Vasto, Bro. José Luis Muñoz, Director of ANS, heard about some of my works from Fr George Zazza, former director of the oratory, and the parish priest, Fr Francesco Pampinella.
