In the essay introducing this collection of photographs of Abruzzo in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Antonio Del Giudice writes of a 'harsh stern land ... molding a harsh stern people', but also a place with a wealth of diverse cultures and of outstanding works of art, despite its poverty. The 30 sepia plates and 24 smaller pictures show the region's formidable landscape, its people and its legacy of grand architecture. Text in Italian and English.
