For this special edition, we chose a thick cover, enhancing the emblematic colors of the team: yellow and blue. Titled "The 7 wonders that made basketball great in Verona", we recounted the team's exploits chronologically, mixing historical photographs with newspaper articles. The images, dated and dark, have been reworked to preserve their vintage authenticity, enriching them with a modern and dynamic touch. The graphic layout combines contrasts of full and empty spaces, overlaps and variations in size, enriched by direct testimonies from players, coaches and sponsors, to capture the atmosphere and emotions of the time.
