Devoto-Oli is one of the most important Italian dictionaries, published by Le Monnier. The aim of the project was to make the pages and the thousand of entries easy to consult, since the layout, for its own nature, is constant. The whole typography is now redesigned and the text is organised thanks to the informations hierarchy, the focused usage of the colour and symbols. The typefaces used are Sole Serif by Cast Foundry and Nitti Grotesk by Bold Monday.
