Zibaldone Origins

A Zibaldone was originally a notebook kept by Italian merchants in the 14th century. Alongside workaday notes they began to add personal stories and pictures. The most famous examples are Leonardo DaVinci’s notebooks.

The Zibaldone Project has taken this structure as a starting point, and has evolved the concept so that a Zibaldone can contain anything – drawings, text, poetry, collage, photography, notes, maps, prayers, lyrics, legends, myths etc – which makes it the ideal format for evoking a sense of place.
