Carlo Stanga lives and works in Berlin and Milan. He became an illustrator early in his career, collaborating with the most important Italian publishers. MAPEI selected Stanga to portray Mapei’s World for a number of reasons. “There was plenty of discussion within the company about the best means of communication to make the general public fully aware of MAPEI’s great potential; opting for such an apparently non-technical means of communication was a very important step forward,” said Adriana Spazzoli, director of marketing and communications for MAPEI Group. “We wanted to break free from the kind of technical style of communication that had always characterized our company; and, upon studying all the potential that illustration has in store, we decided to choose Carlo Stanga, not just for his widely acknowledged professional expertise on an international level and his experience in the world of architecture, but also for his skill at depicting the world of building and construction with such great imagination, originality and flexibility.”
