Uncovering Italy’s Superlatives in people, places and things


49,00 Incl. VAT

With the Mirabilia series Silvia Camporesi takes a journey in search of special places, wonders of nature, unusual museums. Her interest in everything that can be defined as irregular and non-canonical leads her to undertake a unique journey, both for the beauty of these places – mostly outside the classic tourist routes, generally not easy to reach, little frequented – and for the particular suggestions they offer. While treasures such as San Galgano or Villa Adriana in Tivoli may be known to us, very few will have heard of the Agostinelli Museum in Dragona, the underground temple of the Damanhur or the Villa Rossi Park in Santorso. Guided by the author’s gaze, we cross an Italy that seems out of time, a country of “estrangement beauty”, where each photograph generates wonder and functions as an opening onto an interior landscape, bringing with it a sense of disorientation and restlessness. . The book is enriched by texts by Franco Arminio, Maria Vittoria Baravelli and a dialogue between Silvia Camporesi and Cesare Pomarici.
