Who we are

Our mission is to promote architectural culture, enhancing a wider and more qualified dialogue between architects and their audience.

A proactive communication agency.

Image is a vibrant and proactive communication agency with international capability and is dedicated to serving the publicity needs of architects and designers. We are a step ahead of the most traditional and generic communication agencies. We combine our deep understanding of architecture with strategic networking skills, underpinned with an innate sensibility for PR and social media and enriched by a unique and solid experience on architectural communication in video.

Many new directions. A unique vision.

Image is headed by Marco Brizzi, former director of arch’it magazine and initiator of the Beyond Media festival, and Paola Giaconia, architect and professor at California State University and at Kent State University in Florence.

Our team includes diverse and experienced working professionals: Franco Filippini, among the founders, feeds the group with a profound power of collaboration. Paola Ricco, architectural historian and investigative scholar, curates the video archive and resources. Architects, historians, journalists and social media strategists collaborated with us -among them, to name a few, Germana De Michelis, Fiammetta Barsanti, Michele Aquila, Francesca Camurri, Iacopo Carraro, Flavia De Facendis, Susanne Lambert, Alexandra Lipezker, Enrica Longo, Jacopo Marello, Ludwig Sawyer, Lulghennet Teklè, Tommaso Visconti- and came up besides our clients to create and deliver effective ideas that engage media and audiences.
