Italia in-attesa. 12 Racconti Fotografici / 12 Photographic Stories

The Italy depicted by these twelve photographers is an “Italy-in-waiting”, an unexpected Italy as it existed during the most challenging period of the first pandemic lockdown. Their investigations capture Italy’s cultural heritage and its context, urban and non-urban landscapes, all suddenly free from human presence, particularly the mass tourism that had come to alter the natural balance. Whether it is an empty piazza, a detail of an artwork, a mountainous or seaside landscape, or a portrait, each photograph conveys with impressive immediacy the disorientation of the observer. Includes works by Mario Cresci, Olivo Barbieri, Paola De Pietri, Ilaria Ferretti, Walter Niedermayr, and others.
