Axel von Graefe & Alfredo Panzini - Il nuovo volto d’Italia, Mondadori, 1933, Milano

 

Softcover, spiral bound. Text by Italian writer, lexicographer and historian Alfredo Panzini, includes a 5-page list of the 141 plates by Axel von Graefe.

"The Italian publication Il nuovo volto d’Italia (The new face of Italy) paints a benevolent picture of fascism in Italy, ten years into Benito Mussolini’s dictatorship. The book is packed with 141 images of (mainly young) Italians in physically active poses, with a productive and positive, forward-going spirit. This is a great example of the power of editing, both in terms of the effect it has graphically, as well as the emotional angle, in this case the way it disseminates propaganda. ... The front and back cover image shows the entrance of the Mostra della Rivolutione Fascista (Exhibition of the Fascist Revolution) held in Rome at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni from 1932 to 1934."
