Very rare first illustrated edition of Conversazione in Sicilia by Elio Vittorini and Crocenzi

1st illustrated edition Bompiani 1953

This specific edition consists of 228 pp. with 188 photographs in the text. Original edition illustrated by photographs by Luigi Crocenzi and 7th in total of Elio Vittorini's masterpiece.
In 1950 Vittorini went to Sicily with Crocenzi, a young film operator and former collaborator of the Politecnico.
From the journey, which lasted 21 days, was born this sort of photographic story with the text of the novel demoted to mere commentary of the images.
This illustrated edition of the novel is based on the photographic stories of the Politecnico, that is to say, a sequence of photos with an autonomous narrative function.
