Letizia Battaglia returns to Drago

Drago is delighted to feature Letizia Battaglia for the second time following the success of her Anthology. The Sicilian photographer’s new book, Just For Passion, catalogues her exhibition at Rome’s MAXXI National Museum of the 21st Century Arts.

Denouncing corruption, exalting beauty

The book explores the incredible scope and character of Letizia Battaglia’s work. With over one hundred photographs, including previously unpublished works, the collection captures an intimate insight into the ambivalence of Italian life, from harrowing images of the Mafia to beautiful portraits of the women and children of Palermo. In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Battaglia explained that through the duality of her work, she aimed to “to denounce corruption and to exalt beauty.”

International contributors

Contributors include the Dean of the International Centre of Photography in New York, Fred Ritchin; curator, Paolo Falcone; journalist, Attilio Bolzoni; photography critic, Giovanna Calvenzi; the Mayor of Palermo, Leoluca Orlando; Palermo’s Anti-Mafia Magistrate, Franca Imbergamo; the President of the MAXXI Museum, Giovanna Melandri and the Museum’s Director of Architecture, Margherita Guccione.
