Italy 1954–1955

1954 to 1955
Over 1300 black and white photographs illustrate Alan Lomax and Diego Carpitella six-month field trip through Italy with Diego Carpitella in 1954 and 1955. Lomax's growing skill with the camera produced a collection of images evoking the musical culture of peasants, shepherds, fishermen, and artisans in over a hundred localities from Sicily to the Alps. They bear testimony to an era in Italian life and history that was both tragic and enormously fecund.
