La Mia Italia
There is an Italy still shaken, sleepless, wet, bare, the one immortalized by Tony Vaccaro in the decade 1945-1955. It is the Italy of our grandparents! A land poised between mourning and intoxication.
Shy smiles stand out on the rubble, and the abyss that normally passes between life and death, between joy and pain, becomes in those years little more than a crack. They are one and the same!
It is a bit like looking at the sun lingering low on the horizon, and not understanding if it is a sunrise or a sunset. Images captured from north to south form a poignant collection: My Italy.
The Italian-American photographer tells, with simplicity and intelligence, of a special people in a special moment. Faces, towns and cities will take us on an exciting journey back in time, experienced through the lens of a master photographer.
