PRENSA LA LIBERTAD is based in Buenos Aires and strives to rescue the forgotten technologies of moveable type alongside liberating the messages of experiences in the city. Federico Cimatti is Prensa La Libertad, a 25 year old Graphic Design student at the University of Buenos Aires. He enjoys writing verses while he travels by bus around the city, and works as a typesetter printer in his factory.
During Federico’s journey he found colleagues who shared the same passion and that made him participate in two conventions and one individual exhibition in the outside.
