One of at least four posters Riccobaldi designed for the Lloyd Triestino's route from Europe to Egypt. Riccobaldi studied drawing, painting and set design. He supported himself selling illustrations to books and magazines, and ultimately began designing movie posters. From 1927 on, he mostly designed travel posters. This colorful, abstract and geometrical image shows one of the Sphinxes in Karnac, along the Nile. This is the Italian version.
