Valerio Tamagnini is co-founder of Studio Blanco and Cultural Capital with his partner Sara Tamagnini. Studio Blanco was born in 2005 to curate the strategic and visual identity of luxury brands working in the fields of design and fashion. Based in Reggio Emilia, Italy, the studio offers an outsider’s perspective and a boutique approach to its clients, working across the communications spectrum, from positioning to creative concept, art direction, print and digital. In 2017, Valerio and Sara teamed up with Anja Cronberg to start Cultural Capital, a Paris-based project aimed at making critical thinking an integral part of the fashion industry. Using the rigour of scholarly research and the creative and conceptual freedom of the fine arts, Cultural Capital aims to disseminate knowledge and promote a debate around contemporary fashion.
