Ala Littoria Airline to Morocco poster
Ala Littoria was created in the summer of 1934 to give Italy a strong national airline. It was the result of a merger between SAM - Societ. Aerea Mediterranea, Navigazione Aerea - SANA, SISA - Societ. Italiana Servizi Aerei and AEI - Aero Espresso ItalianThis Italian airline advertises its service to Africa with various shades of sienna and terra-cotta skillfully employed by the artist to evoke the impression of adobe walls and the sun-baked earth. Bertuchi was born in Spain and was active mostly in Morocco, the locale where this poster was designed.
