This graceful sans serif humanist font may have a recent design history, but its roots go all the way back to the late 1700s. The FF Scala Sans’ font is a companion font to the FF Scala’ font, both created by Dutch designer Martin Majoor in the early 1990s. They were designed for the Vredenberg Music Center, a concert hall in Utecht in the designer’s native Netherlands. The name Scala refers to the famous Teatro alla Scala, a beautiful and very famous theatre in Naples Italy that was first designed and built in 1776. It has been home to many famous performers including opera singer Maria Callas, orchestra conductor Arturo Toscanini and ballet dancer Rudolph Nureyev.
