About this title


Libretto is a composition of photographs which combines fashion images, still life, and nudes. As if in a fairy tale, the combination of these elements forms a magic and enchanted world of shade and light, shapes and colors, an atmosphere both dreamlike and bewitching. The emotion of a look, the sensuality of a body, the elegance of a movement-together they lead us into the mysterious spheres of beauty. As Paolo Roversi puts it himself: "This small book has emerged coincidentally, without particular reason. One has to take it, the way one picks up a stone, the way one hears a song or a bird twittering down in the garden."
