- Banca dati sul manifesto politico e sociale contemporaneo is a database with over 12.000 political and social posters, coming from various collections. A collection of postcards with political and social subjects is being added to the database. The material dates from the beginning of the 20th century until the present day. It contains political and electoral propaganda posters, postcards, and posters dealing with parties, social movements, and youth organizations. The majority of the material concerns Italy, but there is also some material that regards other European countries and Latin America.

Advanced search in the database is possible. For each item both the digitized original and a detailed record are provided. The digitized images are available for download in JPEG format.

This is a project of the Fondazione Gramsci Emilia-Romagna and Manifesta, in collaboration with the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio Bologna.
