Ileana Florescu, Russell Banks, Io e Calliope. Fotoromanzi

In his introduction to the book, Russell Banks writes: “Photoromances, of course, are not the point of arrival but the indispensable starting point.” Using the format and technique of the photojournalist, Ileana Florescu has translated into images of selected dialogues and extrapolated from twelve masterpieces of Italian and foreign literature, from Don Quixote to Delitto and Punishment, from The Sentimental Education to The Impeccable Man, from Master Father to The Animal Farm. Thus, twelve double pages address the theme of love, inner and generational conflicts, listening needs, bourgeois hypocrisy, the theme of censorship and dictatorship, constantly referring to staff at the universe and vice versa.
