Le Piazze [In]visibili: the beauty of Italy through the pictures of twenty-one iconic squares

When we speak of Italy abroad, it is impossible not to consider the historical and cultural heritage that attract millions of tourists to our country each year.

When we think of Italy’s cities and countless towns that draw visitors from all over the world, the picture that immediately springs to mind is the piazza, which is both the frame and the canvas depicting the palazzos, churches and the daily life that goes on around them.

The piazza has become synonymous with cultural heritage, but it is also a place for meetings and social interaction, for trade and the discussion of ideas. As Italo Calvino wrote in Invisible Cities (whose title inspired this book), “every time you enter the piazza, you find yourself caught in a dialogue”.

A direct testimony of the beauty of Italy through its main squares, emptied by its inhabitants during the days of the emergency.

The [In]visible Squares is an initiative promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, conceived and curated by Marco Delogu and published by Punctum.
