Looking at ooo-site:

The command: find . -name '*.svg'


./content/it/contribuire/images/dashboard (5).svg
./content/it/contribuire/images/lock (1).svg
./content/it/contribuire/images/ok (3).svg

I haven't looked at these in detail, but from the names, the files in
content/marketing/art/galleries sound like they might be relevant.

If those logos are the ones we want, maybe extend the existing
directory structure to include the AOO logos, as well as CD artwork,
