I saw too many books of Luigi Ghirri, too many shows. This one has a particular point of view, the seventies, and is a great contribution to understanding the work of Ghirri. It is a serious book on Italy and Ghirri, on the relationship between writers and history, and the book itself looks great. I like the original book printed many years ago, and I like this new view on Luigi Ghirri and the ‘70s.
