About this Item

Inscribed and Signed by William Klein. " To Rob. William Klein.Introduction by Giovanni Chiaramonte. Text by Guy Mandery. Federico Motta Editore, Milan, 1990. 176 pp. First edition. Small folio. Hardbound. Photo illustrated dust jacket. Numerous full page gravure reproductions. Text in Italian. This book by Klein was only published in Italy. Torino, being the smallest city Klein documented for a monograph, is among the most intimate of his books. It focuses heavily on the city's infatuation with soccer. The end papers are photo illustrated crowd scenes. Anecdotally, we hear that the city of Torino had published the book to celebrate the World Cup matches being held there. They were only distributed in town, and when Italy was knocked out in the semifinals, getting only third place, they were so upset they stopped handing them out and eventually destroyed many of the remaining books. An excellent copy. Bookseller Inventory # 002786

About this title

Synopsis:

Language: italian - 176 pages - - «L'estate del Mondiale di calcio 1990 ha permesso a William Klein di dimostrare ancora una volta che il linguaggio fotografico che ha inventato più di trent'anni fa è più che mai adatto alla vita, alla città e al mondo di questi anni di fine secolo. Più ancora che la Roma degli anni Cinquanta, il suo occhio di plastico-cineasta-fotografo sposa il nostro universo di pubblicità, di movimento, di "media". Una volta viste le sue immagini, è difficile immaginare uno sguardo diverso su Torino Mondiale».
