Original Vintage Italian Poster for "IVLAS" Cacao and Cioccolato by Boccasile

More Views

This adorable poster by Boccasile advertises the cacao and chocolate company - Ivlas. As many other chocolate advertisements of that time, it uses a little boy that seems to have the time of his life - after all, what do little kids love more than chocolate? The kid has a relatively dark skin, which brings to mind the color of chocolate.

Gino Boccasile was an Italian illustrator. Born in Bari, Boccasile was the son of a perfumer. Early in his youth he lost his left eye, when a drop of quicklime fell into it while he drank from a fountain. Nonetheless, he showed a precocious aptitude for design and completed studies at the fine art school of his home town.
