This new title in Electa's BelVedere series pays homage to an Italian photographer who relates stories in images...

For many years Paola Mattioli has been
well-known in Italy. A fine portraitist, over the years
she has moved away from pure description of
figures, aiming rather at organizing a balance
of spaces around them.
An intellectual always attentive to art and
literature, she traverses them by transverse
paths. Her images therefore always require a
“second reading” because they conceal
meanings not perceptible at first sight,
concealed behind subtle and insightful metaphors.
In the photography of Paola Mattioli there
always emerges a symbolic, allusive discourse,
because she is always conscious of the function of
photography. Her images have introduced into
Italian photography a new and original way
of recounting a story by images
and of writing stories with them
