Frank Marciuliano designed Mediterraneo in 1997, a sans serif linear roman face. Like in his other fonts, Linotype Isilda for example, the vertical lines are heavily emphasized. The wavy strokes connecting these verticals give the font a lively, light character. The font knows no rules and builds a restless line of text in which the capitals stand out. Mediterraneo is to be used only in larger point sizes.
Linotype Mediterraneo supports 71 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
