From politics to religion, going from music, sport and television, between 2009 and 2015 Simone Donati crossed his country in search of myths and icons of the Italian contemporary imaginary. This project provides a glimpse into the Italian society with an ironic but also purely documentary look.
The resulting book contains a selection of 48 images with the addition of phrases taken from Facebook groups of the various situations photographed. There is also an afterword by writer Daniele Rielli (Quit the Doner), which besides giving an opinion on the subject also comments on the Facebook phrases.
The book is available at the price of 25€ plus shipping costs.
