Additional Information

La stampa è un processo per la produzione di testi e immagini, tipicamente mediante l'impiego dell'inchiostro su carta e di una pressa da stampa. Spesso viene svolto come processo industriale su larga scala ed è una parte essenziale dell'editoria.

Etching (etching in the cable):
Etching (in Latin as aqua fortis) was once used to describe the nitric acid, also called stain. Today it refers to a type of printing and the way to produce it. The etching technique was known since ancient times and was used for engraving decorations on weapons. Some of the first to use it for fine art prints have been Albrecht Dürer in Germany and Parmigianino in Italy.
