Mimmo Jodice’s vision of Italy is infused with a fascinating appeal. Seen through his lens, the country takes on a whole new aspect: even its landmarks vibrate with movement and possibility. Anyone with an interest in Italy or photography will covet this beautifully produced volume, an important addition to the Jodice canon.

Mimmo Jodice, one of Italy’s most prominent and respected photographers, works as both a documentarian and a magic realist. When working as an architectural photographer he has a straightforward approach to preserving the site as an artefact, but manages to infuse his subject with a romanticism that transcends the space. His landscapes are similarly distinctive, and marked by their dizzying sense of movement, which is achieved by a slight blurring or zooming of the camera that gives volume and substance to the ordinary and unnoticed.

Francine Prose is the critically acclaimed author of more than twelve novels, including Blue Angel. Alessandra Mauro is a renowned photography curator. Roberta Valtorta is a photographic historian and professor at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Milan.
