Enzo Isaia: 60 photographs from the 60’s

 

When: From March 11 to April 15, 2022

Where: Torino

 

  “I am convinced that color photography is similar to today’s television as far as the faithful reproduction of reality is concerned, while black and white photography is similar to radio, which, like the latter, makes everyday life worthy of reflection…”

The small details that make Italian life special, that’s what Italy Segreta is about – the self-taught photographer Enzo Isaia was able to capture those moments in black and white. Isaia’s images will take you through post-war Italy, each communicating its own message of a booming country, reborn. Elegant women, children playing, priests studying, and elderly sitting on benches, all reminders of time past, an opportunity to be nostalgic and reflect.
