Garibaldi Compendium, Caprera
|Author||Paola De Pietri|
'Other gazes' is a book series curated by art historian Maura Picciau that explores Italy’s lesser-known museums and places through the eyes of great photographers and the words of writers and critics, and rediscover the Italian artistic heritage with other gazes. Paola De Pietri, a photographer known for her portrayal of the landscape, in On your granite peaks confronts a living natural environment with strong contrasts such as that of the island of Caprera, in the Maddalena archipelago, where Giuseppe Garibaldi spent 25 years devoting himself to an active and serene life. Marcello Fois delivers a delicate and autobiographical text on his first visit to Garibaldi’s museum, as a child, together with his father; Antonello Frongia, an esteemed photography critic, freely examines Paola De Pietri’s proposal.
