Photography , a silent art that is much more eloquent than words to our eyes, is insuperable in the easiness and quickness of its perceptive and intellectual message because of its instantaneous nature, which catches and fixes the objective reality of the moment for a long time.
The fascination of photography as a representation of the real world consists in its immutability , which attaches meaning to its figurative immobility and makes it be an impassive witness who can still arouse strong emotions or suggest feelings of poetry.
The human worrying of protracting, in years to come, the image of today's reality is so fully satisfied by the technological enchantment of photography that several painters have used it as a handy memory of places, peaple, events of which they could avail themselves, at their leisure, as figurative models of a vanished reality, to which the artist could give a pictorical connotation, also making use of his own ability to portray reality in a complementary, immaginary perspective.
This volume, which wants to be a historical portrait of Piedmont, seen in its composite variety of landscape and humanity, makes use of period photographs to offer the reader a picture of a reality which is no longer actual, as time has changed it in its visible structure. Our cultural purpose has been to give evidence of our Piedmontese world in recent times. A time still so near us that we may be fascinated by it and even nostalgic for it.
Professional and amateur photographers, eiter known or unknown, have left us their contribution of images with the naturalness of truth that is the lifeblood of photography.
The peculiarity that makes our work different from others photographic anthologies consists not only in photographs but also in fragments of poetry or prose that the very images suggest.
