ITALO ZANNIER: The emotion of a meeting
Really an unexpected and exciting meeting that with Maestro Italo Zannier. I’ll tell you how it went…. Last week at the end of the television program “Percorsi d’Arte” in which, interviewed by the art critic Castellana, I tell my project about trees, the editorial staff of Canale Italia informs me that among the phone calls received there is that of Prof. Italo Zannier.
Italo Zannier? The photographer, academic and pioneer of the history of photography in Italy? I think of a candid camera and ask “It’s a joke, isn’t it?”. “No, no. He saw your works on TV and said he would like to know you. He left his number so you call him back”.
Well, it wasn’t a joke…
Being able to meet Prof. Italo Zannier, spend a whole morning with him talking about art and photography and listen to his comments on my work was a unique and exciting experience that I will never forget. And he also told me that we will see each other again!
