Waiting Days: 10

A posthumous volume recounting Gabriele Basilico’s constant artistic research into his city; a documentation carried out over a lifetime, a true obsession. Edited by photo editor and photographer’s partner Giovanna Calvenzi, and with a text by Roberta Valtorta, the book opens with a letter, addressed to Milan, from Basilico himself: <<“this city belongs to me and I belong to it”>>, just to quote an extract. 200 photographs and, framing them, the contributions of architects, intellectuals and artists who collaborated with him, during his perpetual work of territorial reconnaissance, aimed at immortalising, freezing them, the passages of a metropolis in transformation, in the difficult transition between modernity and post-modernity. Yet another tribute to a great Italian photographer.
