Suitable for all

The magic of great cinema, the charm of good music and high fashion, they all live on through the images of "Italian Icons", returning memories or simply offering an opportunity for new discoveries.

It is easy to get ravished by this path made of unforgettable faces.

Whimsical, bold, quick, Ron Galella was never a photographer with a repetitive style if not in his preference for black and white. He used his Nikon to catch his "prey" by surprise, and occasionally also to pay tribute to the beauty like in the measured portraits of Anna Magnani and Rossano Brazzi. His pictures refer to life stories. These images have not been pondered and hence have a very special value because they open a new perspective on intimate and real histories of humanity, like the picture made to Isabella Rossellini, who shines in its simplicity, or to Silvana Mangano, photographed in profile to enhance her aristocratic beauty.

He could steal a moment in time, by catching the sensuality and harmony of a gesture as with Anne Bancroft, but also by taking impertinent shootings as those stolen from Ernest Borgnine and Anna Moffo.

Despite being born in the news, Galella's work has survived to this: more than fragments of beau monde, these images today appear as a tribute to the Italian and the Italian-American culture
