Simultaneously at the Venice Film Festival, Maurizio Galimberti Festival presents, at the Casa dei Tre Oci the photographic book "Portraits" (SilvanaEditoriale), together with the Blessed Donato curator and artistic director of the Three OIC Denis Curti. Galimberti in the meeting will be available to sign copies of his book.

"Portraits" is the first published anthology of over 180 portraits by Maurizio Galimberti in more than thirty years of artistic career, from early experimentation to the compositions of single polaroid become famous worldwide as the "mosaic". The portraits immortalize the most representative figures of our time, by Umberto Eco to Mimmo Rotella and Carla Fracci, with a significant foray into the world of cinema, from Michelangelo Antonioni to George Clooney, from Monica Bellucci to Robert De Niro, Johnny Depp in Wim Wenders, to name a few.

"The eye of the photographer - the curator - focuses on the details, on the qualities and imperfections that predominate the face and are turned, at the time of realization of the shot, into fragments, marked by a succession of regular intervals. Single Polaroid, a multitude of unique carriers of a single identity take shape at the time of composition, manual intervention, the artist will perform during the installation of the portrait and it will remain permanently imprinted on the instant film. " Galimberti was the first to use this technique, choosing Snapshot world as a medium of choice. As observed by Denis Curti, "that which has no equal is his way of understanding and doing photography, many try to imitate him, but no one succeeds."
