Il gruppo dell' Ippogrifo si forma nel 1977 a Firenze, nello storico quartiere di San Frediano, ponendosi come fine la ricerca, l'approfondimento e l'utilizzo delle antiche tecniche dell'incisione su metallo. In particolare è allo studio e l'applicazione dell' acquaforte, e delle tecniche che la completano e accompagnano, come l'acquatinta, la ceramolle, il bulino, che i grafici fondatori dell'Ippogrifo hanno dedicato anni delle loro ricerche e delle loro applicazioni. La strada scelta, oltre a permettere la naturale espressione dell'artista, ha portato alla composizione di un vero e proprio servizio tecnico attraverso il quale, chiunque voglia, possa creare un immagine di alta qualità, da destinare all'arredamento, al regalo, al turismo o alla promozione aziendale, e comunque adatta a tutte le occasioni nelle quali la creazione di un oggetto artistico personalizzato permette di ricordare e mantenere nel tempo le ragioni della sua creazione. All'interno del sito sono visibili molti esempi di incisioni riservate ad Enti, Comuni, Aziende, Negozi o realizzate per privati; nella sezione "servizio" è descritto come poter creare un'immagine su richiesta.
Samarkand is a city in south-eastern Uzbekistan and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Central Asia. There is evidence of human activity in the area of the city from the late Paleolithic era, though there is no direct evidence of when Samarkand was founded; some theories propose that it was founded between the 8th and 7th centuries B.C. Prospering from its location on the Silk Road between China and the Mediterranean, at times Samarkand was one of the greatest cities of Central Asia. Samarkand is a cross of world cultures for over two and a half millennia, and is one of the most important sites on the Silk Routes traversing Central Asia. If there is a jaw-dropping glitzy blue in Central Asia, a lot of it would be concentrated here especially on the tiles, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its layered history is colored by such personas as Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Amir Timur, and others, evoking a sense of grandeur, beauty, culture, and definitely the weight of time. Hence, a visit here is a must.
Saint Peter Basilica in Rome is one of the holiest temples for Christendom and one of the largest churches in the world. Besides, it is where the Pope presides many liturgies all year round. The construction of the new basilica began in 1506, when the old basilica had been torn down, and was finished in 1626. It was consecrated on 18 November 1626. Several renowned architects designed the temple, highlighting the works of Bramante, Michelangelo and Carlo Maderno. The basilica was called St Peter’s after one of Jesus’s twelve disciples known as Saint Peter, who became one of the founders of the Catholic Church and was executed in Rome and buried where the Basilica now stands. The Papal Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican, is an Italian Renaissance church in Vatican City, the papal enclave within the city of Rome. Designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, St. Peter's is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and the largest church in the world. While it is neither the mother church of the Catholic Church nor the cathedral of the Diocese of Rome, St. Peter's is regarded as one of the holiest Catholic shrines. It has been described as "holding a unique position in the Christian world" and as "the greatest of all churches of Christendom".

Saint Helena is a volcanic tropical island in the South Atlantic Ocean. It is part of the British Overseas Territory of Saint Helena. Saint Helena Island, was one of the many isolated islands that naturalist Charles Darwin visited during his scientific voyages in the nineteenth century. He visited the island in 1836 aboard the HMS Beagle, recording observations of the plants, animals, and geology that would shape his theory of evolution. Saint Helena Island is perhaps best known as the place where Napoleon Bonaparte I of France was exiled following his defeat at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815; he died and was buried on the island in 1821. Later, his remains were returned to France. Today, the island is a British Overseas Territory, with access provided thirty times a year by a single ship, the Royal Mail Ship St. Helena.

Singapore, an island city-state off southern Malaysia, is a global financial center with a tropical climate and multicultural population. Its colonial core centers on the Padang, a cricket field since the 1830s and now flanked by grand buildings such as City Hall, with its 18 Corinthian columns. In Singapore's Chinatown stands the red-and-gold Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, said to house one of Buddha's teeth. Singapore is much more than the sum of its numerous attractions. It’s constantly evolving, reinventing, and reimagining itself, with people who are passionate about creating new possibilities.
