Capitolium News regular, italic
Capitolium News (2006) Capitolium was designed in 1998 at the request of the Agenzia romana per la preparatione del Giubileo for the Jubilee of the Roman Catholic Church in 2000. This type design was the central part of the project for a wayfinding and information system to guide pilgrims and tourists through Rome. Capitolium also continues Rome’s almost uninterrupted two-thousand-year-old tradition of public lettering . It is a modern typeface for the twenty-first century and strongly related to the traditions of Rome.
Of course the different varieties of the original Capitolium family can be combined with Capitolium News, for example for headlines on pages where other subjects than the news may require elegance or distinction. This is also an option in periodicals.
As is possible with most of my type designs, Capitolium News can be condensed and expanded without any harm to the letterforms.
The headline fonts of Capitolium News, light, regular, semibold and bold, can be combined with Gulliver for body text.
Capitolium News can be used in combination with BigVesta for text as well as for headlines.
