After the exhibition of Berengo Gardin’s photographs, the Italian Cultural Institute presents the work of Fulvio Roiter, another great Italian photographer of the same generation, also a member of La Gondola, the avant-garde neorealist art circle.
Born in Veneto in 1926, famous for his photos of the Serenissima, Roiter is a pioneer in Italy in the edition of photographic books, which he builds with great care. The forty-eight black and white photos on display today are from the book Umbria. Terre de Saint-François (Guild of the Book of Lausanne, 1955) which earned him the Nadar Prize in 1956. These beautiful photos of the Umbrian countryside give the Song of the Creatures a photographic and poetic reading, evoking the grandeur of creation, the splendor of nature, the fear of death … Wherever he goes, Roiter literally revealed beauty. He sublimated the appearances of everyday life without concealing the real substance of things. Emotion united with simplicity.
Fulvio Roiter: a dream in Umbria
