During the 20th century, the evolutions, changes, curiosities and aspects that followed each other, continuing to characterise Italy for better or for worse, were numerous, and today on the threshold of the third millennium we have wanted to celebrate everything. The volume contemplates twenty-two thematic sections, each of which reasoned and compared as to style and epoch, by a selection of pictures by Italian and foreign photographers. Starting from archaic Italy with its uncontaminated landscapes and population with strong faces, in spite of war and famine, the story of the evolution of the nation is narrated by the pictures of monuments and architecture, means of transport, folklore and industry, artisan work and design, fashion, market and trade, tourism, food, school, art, literature, music, theatre, cinema, radio and television, medicine, emigration, down to the most recent technological and scientific conquests.
