The result of a long bicycle trip in two stages along Italian coasts, “Orizzonte in Italia” by Antonio Rovaldi is a complex image that has formed over time, through an accumulation of gazes; it is at the same time the trace of an experience, personal and circumscribed, and of an imaginary world, collective and boundless.

Here we also show the photos that marked his travel when creating the book.
