Michelangelo Antonioni is certainly one of the directors most of interest to photographers. With ‘The Red Desert’, 1964, his first colour movie, set in the industrial area of Ravenna, he dealt with themes that were to be of key importance for both American and European photography over the following decades.
Linea di Confine, in collaboration with Die Photograpische Sammlung / SK Stiftung Kultur Colonia (D), has realized the catalogue of the photographic researches made by 8 italian photographers as Francesco Neri, Allegra Martin, Marcello Galvani and others, on the themes of the movie by Antonioni to which were added historical works by Franco Vaccari, Lewis Baltz, Guido Guidi, William Guerrieri and Sabrina Ragucci.
