Lost in seeing covers a thirty-year journey through the changes of the Italian scene.

Mimmo Jodice, one of the greatest Italian photographers, offers unexpected visions and unseen things, famous places and territories of the imagination. He crossed Italy from the north to the south in his modern Grand Tour, drawing a comprehensive portrait of striking images. Jodice’s magical realism leads us through the Mediterranean islands, the Italian countryside, the restoration of St. Peter’s church in Rome, the decommissioning of Venice-Marghera, the remains of Pompeii, and the urban transformations and the sites of archaeology.

Seen through his lens, Italy takes on a whole new aspect; even its landmarks vibrate with movement and possibility.
