A very striking original Art Deco poster for Lazzaroni Amaretti Di Sarono, an Italian sweet that has been produced by the company since the early 18th century. Amaretti di Saronno refer to an amaretto macaron that is traditional to Saronno, a comune of Lombardy, Italy. It is one of many types of traditional amaretto biscuits. 

The poster is oversized, measuring 58 x 80.5 inches, is linen backed, and in excellent condition. Very reflective of the brutalist style that was popular in Italy at the time, it has extremely vibrant colors and strong lines. Perfect for a restaurant or bar - or a home kitchen with a big wall.
