This poster, sponsored by the Ente Provinciale per Turismo (The provincial body for Tourism) in Italy features a dynamic art deco stylization with crisp colors. In the righthand side of the image, artist Mario Puppo illustrates one of Naples’ most notable historic sites, the Porta Capuana. The ancient city gate which was built in the 15th century appears smooth and inviting in Puppo’s illustration accompanied by a scenic mountain view in the background.
