Publisher's Description

The ambition of this project was to capture the spirit of a nation, to present photographically the portrait of the Italians. At the beginning of the sixties, I crisscrossed Italy from north to south, staying each time for three weeks, returning to Paris, developing and examining the images, and then leaving again for another region...

This is a sensitive portrait of Italian society in the early sixties by the well-known photographer Bruno Barbey, from Magnum Photos. From 1961 to 1964, Barbey spent a lot of time in Italy trying to capture the spirit of the nation through his photography.
