The artist

A photography professor at the prestigious European Design Institute, Massimo Siragusa was born in 1958 in Catania, Sicily, and now lives in Rome. The many architectural treasures of his country form the main source of inspiration of his work. He likes to reveal certain ancient or contemporary sites, famous or lesser-known places, such as gardens and monuments, as well as urban or rural, artificial or natural panoramic landscapes. His photographs have been exhibited many times in Italian and international museums and published in magazines across the globe. Major brands and public institutions such as the Commune of Rome, the Province of Milan, Lavazza, ENI, Bosch, Versace or Milan Airport have also called on his talent to illustrate their advertising campaigns.  ...

I think it's important to pay more attention to the landscape and the changes that people make, whether positive or negative.

MASSIMO SIRAGUSA

About the artwork

Italy is one of the leading European tourist destinations. Famous for the beauty of its coastline, mountains, architecture, food, and for its painters, it offers incomparable cultural wealth. The many architectural treasures of his country form the main source of inspiration of Massimo Siragusa?s work. He likes to reveal certain ancient or contemporary sites, famous or more intimate places, such as gardens and monuments. Dating from January 2011, The Secret Paper ? Roma stems from the ?Secret Papers? series that offers an inventory of the most beautiful Italian libraries. This one reveals the architecture of the reading room of the library of the Chamber of Deputies in Rome. Founded in 1848, Insula Domenicana Palace specialises in the legal, historic, and economic disciplines, political sciences, and the history of institutions. The overexposed colours, work on white tones, and the frontality of the framing enabled the photographer to achieve pastel tones, and a muted and almost unreal atmosphere.
