Thanks to Giuliano I was introduced to the professional and personal life of Alda Merini.
Starting from Giuliano’s book “Testimonianze”, which puts together memories of personalities who knew the poetess in life, we’ve worked together on a project to remember and express her themes and values.
I met Cristina in the same studio of her husband, the photographer Francesco Radino, in which she works with colours, as well as black and white and in a different way of interpreting the photo shoot. In her works I found a very peculiar characteristic, her photos show almost a poetic finesse which makes her works different from her colleagues. She accepted to take part to the Itart project with enthusiasm, offering me one of her most significant photo: New York 1995, taken from the Twin Towers.
Lorenzo is a young photographer whose black and white pictures show representative images of his region, the Marche.
He joined my project giving me some important photos that we used to create exclusive and particular t-shirts.
I had the pleasure and the honor I could make a t-shirt with one shot of the great photographer Mario De Biasi, thanks to the licensing given me by his daughter Silvia. I heard about his death when I was in Milano, in the home-studio of Roberto Mutti, a friend of him and a great photographic critic who drew my attention on the works that De Biasi had done during his artistic journey. Roberto himself wrote an article that I published and that can be read in the Blog.
