This book, conceived following Domenico Fargnoli’s exhibition, Trasparenze, at the Tornabuoni Arte in Florence, confronts Paola Binante’s photography with the artist’s thoughts in verbal-visual diptychs. An unexpected book, outside of conventional time, with images and sound; a narrative deeply rooted in a long history of research between psychiatry and art. The book cover reproduces the play of transparency and light shown in the works of the exhibition.
Domenico Fargnoli is a psychiatrist/psychotherapist. In 1991, he and Massimo Fagioli founded the psychiatry/psychotherapy magazine, Il sogno della farfalla, of which he is still the editor. He has written many articles and essays on psychiatrical and artistic subjects.
