Letizia Battaglia & Franco Zecchin - Dovere di cronaca, The duty to report.

A collection of high-impact images by two major Italian photographers: Letizia Battaglia and Franco Zecchin. Reportage that became testimonies, stories, not just images, stories of the Mafia in Sicily. The photographs in this book fluctuate constantly between art and testimony, and trace the events that narrate the horrors and emotions that surround it. As Letizia Battaglia says in an interview: "Life goes before us in an uninterrupted flow. Fixing a fragment in an image gives us the ability to stop time and look at what happened in a here and now. The photographer always transforms what he sees, even when its intention is to bear witness."
