‘Radical’ is something ‘acting in depth, concerning an issue beginning with its essential principles’, according to Salvatore Battaglia’s definition in the Grande dizionario della lingua italiana. With this as his starting point, photographer Piero Martinello travelled around Italy in search of women and men who — each in their own way and for different reasons — have embraced radical choices and lifestyles.
Radicalia is a project by Piero Martinello, featuring Lorenzo Fanton’s art direction and visual contributions by Enrica Casentini, Alberto Gobber, Luca Zamoc, Patrick Waterhouse, Ramon Pez and Alberto Sola. Texts by Piero Casentini and Cosimo Bizzarri.
The project was made possible by the LUZ Fellowship that LUZ Photo granted Martinello in November 2012.
