The Fabbrica Italiana Lapis ed Affini was founded in Florence 100 years ago.
This title retraces this century of history through the pen of Valerio Millefoglie and the pencils of Andrea Antinori, in a story that moves between past, present and future; between Florence, Milan and the whole world. In the first part of the book, Valerio Millefoglie tells the story of FILA and the people who have been its key players, guiding us through letters, catalogues and archive materials.
Individual testimonies that make up the story of a company, reflecting that of an entire country and how it has changed over time. To complete the story, Andrea Antinori's illustrations bring to light the brand's traditional products, with their original packaging.
