Luisa Menazzi Moretti: Somewhere
There are books of photoraphy that speak to each one of us, with images that take us back to an emotion that, even thought we do not remember where or when, we feel we have experienced. These are pictures that show us something we have already seen; however, a new perspective, a different glance convey something we have already known as if it were the first time, the vey first time for something that we are already familiar with. [...]
Carla Iacono: FairyGlaze and other stories
Carla Iacono, conceptual photographer, uses the portrait to investigate the moments of transition and explore the territories of the unconscious. It is an autobiographical path, born from the desire to underline the ongoing spreadingof a “non-culture” based on manipulation and negative models of which the teenagers seem to be the first victims. [...]
Enrico Nicolò: Photoblurrygraph
The book Photoblurrygraph presents 51 analogue colour photographs by Enrico Nicolò, progressively more out-of-focus images offering a sensorial, emotional, gradual visual journey going from misty sceneries to vanishing and abstract visions, obtained through an increasing loss of shape of the elements making up natural or scantily inhabited landscapes. [...]
Giuliano Ferrari: Grand Tour
Travelling was thus a way of getting to know, gaining this knowledge is not merely a question of seeing but requires a mental effort to make a critical observation in order to memorise, it stimulates any doubts we have on the cause and consequences of the things we see and leads us to compare our own experiences with our new knowledge. Perhaps it is due to the very awareness of these opportunities that Giuliano Ferrari is now presenting a new in-depth look, through photography, at the same topic, yet with a new title. [...]
Antonella Monzoni: Ferita Armena
Melancholy, rain, snow, windswept landscapes, run-down Soviet buildings, fighting dogs and many sad flowers scattered on the ground in front of the twelve basalt slabs of the Genocide Memorial on the hill of Tsitsernakaberd (“swallow’s fortress” in Armenian); but also raised fists, the symbol of the Armenians’ eternal struggle to ensure that the terrible 1915 events are not forgotten, and untamed faces with fiery eyes bearing the burden of an ancient sadness.

Soglie/Thresholds - Dario Apostoli
Dario Apostoli’s photographs are blinding urban deserts. They arouse two intense feelings. The first is that we’re watching, up-close and with no protection; the light sweeps over things, corroding them with violence that heralds the atomic wind, the all-consuming fire that makes all remaining shadows more vivid and colourful. The second feeling is that reality seems flooded by a supernatural light, as in a pleasant and far-off dream similar to those described by people after awaking from a coma. Those who have experienced a kind of death before coming back to the world of the living.

Journey to Armenia - Silvia Camporesi
The starting point, from which the work borrows its title, is the Russian writer Osip Mandel'štam's trip to Armenia in 1930. Silvia Camporesi has retraced the tracks of that journey in search of the holy places, atmospheres and landscapes that had so much fascinated Mandel'štam. Armenia, the kingdom of screaming stones, becomes thus a place of photographic and cultural exploration, unveiling landscapes and images of churches and monasteries with typical architectures, rising impervious, perfectly aligned to the profiles of the surrounding mountains and so preciously embellished with stone crosses (khatchkar).
