HOSTS

BAGNO ELENA

Mario Conti

City beach. A dive to sea in a clipping of time. In swimsuit under the buildings that look at you, between the theatrical scenes of Vesuvius and Palazzo Donn'Anna.

THE CENTURIES OF THE BANCO

Mario Conti

This form is already content.
Impressed in these parchments, in these worn-out leather backs, you not only see the gestures of centuries, but also the lives of people who originated such deeds - transactions, wills, alms, ransoms for pirates’ hostages...

THE GHOSTS OF

MARCIGLIANA

Mario Conti

... An obscure abandoned building, absorbed in the Natural Reserve of Marcigliana, among Rome, Mentana and Monterotondo. In the current vulgate it is the “Former Marcigliana madhouse", a label which calls to local minds presumed drug parties, satanic rites and metapsychic visions.

THE GRACEFULNESS

OF GARBATELLA

Mario Conti

I would call it a graceful neighborhood (...). And a quiet neighborhood too, and uncaring of modernity (...). Kitchen-gardens are cultivated, cats are sheltered and raised; clothes are drained in the sun, ...

OASI DI CANNEVIE'

Mario Conti

If it were not for the name, you nevertheless should call this maze of water and sandy dunes an "oasis" .Providentially left out (the only one among these lands) of the drainage of the surrounding valleys, it is an oasis for fish who (now!) live here undisturbed

VALLI DI COMACCHIO,

FLAT, TIMELESS PEACE

Mario Conti - Grazia Brogi

Time flows as a slow placid river, with the solemn pace of the novel by Bacchelli. Speed looks like a wound, it is not suited to the landscape; the pattern of life is active and practical, but ...

IMAGINATION AND/IS

AMERICA. ROUTE 66,

A POP ARCHAEOLOGY

Mario Conti - Antonio Isca

Two friends drive through the entire Route 66 - from Chicago (IL) to Santa Monica (CA) - with no other purpose than to verify the matching between reality and the common suggestions built up through the feast of...

We knew what we would have met, we were not new to the city; but we wanted to try to move ignoring stereotypes (no use to hope to escape them all), to make us immediately vulnerable to the first of Moroccan seductions.

A TALE OF TWO CITIES: MARRAKECH

Mario Conti - Antonio Isca

A TALE OF TWO CITIES: ESSAOUIRA

Mario Conti - Antonio Isca

Marrakech is mercantile huge, Essaouira contemplation.

At three-hour drive, Essaouira gives you back space and time.

It watches the ocean from its massive ramparts, with its mind to the years of Mogador...

BERLIN

Antonio Isca

Until the 27 miles of the reinforced concrete wall have been crossing it, wounding it to death, Berlin almost represented the negation of the idea of city. A place with a mutilated soul. A body deprived of its original form.

TRIPOLI, LAST DAYS

FROM A PREVIOUS LIFE

Mario Conti

 Grazia and I were in Tripoli, in the months just preceding the events that led to the killing of Muammar Gaddafi and made the country slip into a tunnel whose end we cannot see.

GUESTS

THE NIGHTHAWKS

Sergio Vollono

Sergio Vollono comes across a lost night angel,  wandering on the roofs licked up by the last daylight; unmindful of her mission but still keeping traces of an original will in her gaze.

Napoli. The traveler entering "The Health", one of the gateways to the Materdei district, is dominated by an immense wall that overlooks his climb from right. Not many Neapolitans know what that wall hides.

THE MADMEN

OF MATERDEI

Grazia Brogi, Sergio Vollono, Mario Conti

MATTER OF SECONDS

Francesco Pollicina

 

Only a few seconds to freeze time, emotions, colors.

As a child, I witnessed a real magic: in almost total darkness - the only light of a red lamp - a white paper in a liquid turned into a photo.

ICELAND -

ON THE ROAD

FRA REYKJAVIK E VIK

Fabrizio Lombardi

The striking Icelandic landscape provides fertile ground for photographers of all skill levels. Iceland’s rugged and unearthly scenery ensures that even amateur photographers will...

YELLOWSTONE:

NOT JUST YELLOW

Grazia Brogi

It's been 640,000 years since the last major eruption that ash-blanketed the whole of North America; over the centuries the forests grew back, but the memory of the great eruption is still present in the continuous...

LAST ROUND

Sergio Vollono

On October 27 2012 I met boxing, and I met Devis Boschiero, the European Champion of Super-Feather weights, a small man but a concentration of absolute power and simplicity, just like boxing.
