"As Vittorio notes in the Modern Poster: 'In Italy in the last century operas
were the beneficiaries of poster advertising. They were usually ornamented with
rococo decoration and sometimes engravings representing the principal characters.'
Furthermore it is by means of the opera poster that we can follow the evolution
of the beginnings of advertising art in Italy
While the artistic poster was
dying in France, in Italy new talents, 'like strong children who have suckled
good milk and then overpowered their nurses' (as Crauzat exclaims a little emphatically
in L'Estampe et L'Affiche), surpassed their Parisian masters" (Weill,
Boano's poster for Torino's Royal Theatre (opera house) of a bare
shouldered young lady passionately playing a wonderfully ornate harp is set against
a stylized background. His subtle colouring and style embodies the Italian temperament.
