Mitologia Italiana - le stampe

An exploration of the Italian cultural landscape, from 1909 to 1960; a work of fiction; 
as a reworked appropriation of Italo Calvino’s Italian Folktales.

Through the paper-thin, rose-tinted covers of La Gazzetta dello Sport words tell tales of mythological encounters; and a race across the ages. Through revolution and evolution this background vista makes headlines. And as the race goes on, so La Corsa Rosa continues to reflect the shape-shifting society through which it passes.
