Paul Graham – Europe: America. I segni della storia

The brilliant and irreverent gaze of English photographer Paul Graham delivers to the new European and American generations a handbook of images of the themes they will face, outlining – through affinities and differences – the complex dividing line that runs along the two shores of the Western world.

Antonio Rovaldi – Il suono del becco del picchio

Walking as an aesthetic practice: the artist gives an intimate and poetic description of a city that manifests its most secret nature, echoing ancient civilizations.
