Pietro Donzelli’s images of Italy in the 1950s and ’60s are today regarded as some of his most important works. Keen on observing the lives of ordinary people during the period following the devastation of the Second World War and prior to the country’s widespread industrialisation, he captured remote landscapes inhabited by a largely rural population. His light-filled journey began in his hometown of Milan, and subsequently took him from the Po Delta region in the north, to Naples and Sicily in the south. Published in conjunction with a large exhibition of Donzelli’s photographs at the Opelvillen in Rüsselsheim, this monographic volume presents his reportage-style series.
