Il Derby della Madonnina – Pennarello Graphics

From the excellent – website of James Campbell Taylor, graphic designer from Nottingham – comes Il Derby della Madonnina, his vast artwork dedicated to the Milan derby between Inter and Milan.

Featuring classic images of the famous derby from down through the years they include some excellent design, from smart and slick font usage to subtle colour changes and box layouts there are some great graphics in the collection.


Il Derby della Madonnina is the meeting of Milan’s two football teams, Associazione Calcio Milan and Football Club Internazionale di Milano, more commonly known as Milan and Inter. Named for the tiny gold Madonna that sits atop the Duomo’s tallest spire, the Milanese derby is arguably the most keenly contested and observed fixture in the Serie A calendar, with the result often directly influencing the destination of lo scudetto, Italy’s national championship. Except for two seasons in the early 1980s when Milan were relegated to Serie B, the two city neighbors have met twice each campaign for the last one hundred years.
