Five Books

Giorgio Di Noto is one of the artists who will inaugurate the museum’s RETROFUTURE section this fall/winter season 2020 — 2021.


Below he shares his most appreciated reads.

Italo Calvino, Difficult Loves
Everything stems from the difficulty of communicating, making oneself understood and meeting. Calvino’s adventures, starting from the famous one of the photographer, have greatly influenced my formative and expressive path.

Raymond Queneau, Exercises in Style 
Those books that change your life. Enlightening text that will always be the basis of all my reflections on the possibilities of language.

Emilio Garroni, Immagine, Linguaggio, Figura
A book that I love very much, a milestone to delve into the “enigma” of perception and images, from a philosophical (not only) point of view.

Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin, War Primer 2
In the years when I started working on the visual representation of conflict, this book has been and still is a fundamental reference point.

Oscar Muñoz, Protographs – Catalogue
Love at first sight. This publication contains a collection of the works of Oscar Muñoz, a fundamental reference for investigating the relationship between representation, memory and perceptions of images.
