Synopsis 
  
German-born photographer, art collector and aesthete Herbert List had a special affinity throughout his life with Italy. A man whose artistic approach had been shaped by the European avant-garde of the 1920s and 1930s, he found motifs in Italy that appealed to his senses and to his strong approach to form, and between the 1930s and 1970s he was drawn to the country again and again. This book presents the photographic impressions of Italy that List recorded, a mixture of people, places, art, life, past and present. Street scenes from 1930s Rome appear next to pictures of the catacombs at Palermo, and portraits of List's artist friends, among them de Chirico, Morandi and Marini, stand alongside glimpses of everyday life in Naples.
