This is an evocative collection of images and verse that showcase Italy's unique and enduring artistic vision. The new world that is taking shape demands to be explored by a wide range of artistic languages, with the aim of closely confronting the new frontiers of reality. As with other countries in the past, photography in Italy seems, more than ever, to be in harmony with the times, capable of integrating the dominant characteristics of the present era. The photographic composition involves a process of intensification and realization, a synthesis, exactly as poetry distils concepts with essential, perfectly balanced words, without there being a single superfluous one. In this volume, contemporary Italian photography and poetry join together as protagonists to show the world the special, all-Italian relationship between tradition and renewal, past and future.
