Description: Venezia: Marsilio, 2011. 28cm., pbk., 280pp. prof. illus., several in color. English translation of "Il furore delle immagini," pub. 2010. Publisher's summary : Drawn from the archives of Italo Zannier, the "grand old man" of Italian photography, a teacher, collector and photographer himself, the over 260 images in this volume document the history of the "marvelous invention" from its beginnings to the tendencies of the present day, from the daguerreotypes of the late 19th century to the Italian neorealism of the thirties and forties, from the years of "la dolce vita" in Rome with its stars and paparazzi to the seventies and eighties when photography began to reflect on itself and its language through its first tentative experiments with disintegration of the image. A true story told in pictures, an incredible and gripping tale of Italy and of photography, the history of a burning passion that has driven Zannier to collect, catalog and preserve thousands of images and objects.
