Santa Maria Novella is a well know site for art lovers. The Dominican complex is located in the heart of Florence and houses masterpieces of Giotto, Masaccio, Brunelleschi, Filippino Lippi, Paolo Uccello, Sandro Botticelli just to name a few.
This elegant editorial project was born with the intention to offer a photographic synthesis of all the most important artworks in Santa Maria Novella and to fund at the same time the ongoing restoration.
A pleasure for the eyes and the mind made in years of shooting and surveys by Antonio Quattrone, professional photographer specialized in the cultural heritage sector. Not just photographs, but an intimate way to appreciate these magnificent, controversial, unique works.
Not a “guide”, but a journey into the beauty of one of the most important site in Italy. First project of the Phobò series, dedicated to the storytelling of our heritage with the power of photography.
We want to tell the beauty of these places, through the eye of the photographers who still today make immortal the masterpieces of the past.
Once the pre-sales number has been reached, the project will be finally published and distributed in all the main Italian bookshops! Of course you will receive your booked copy at you postal address with no extra costs.
These initial copies constitute only the first step of this crowdfunding. The main project is to contribute to the conservation and the restoration of Santa Maria Novella, which requires continuous and important maintenance.
Thanks to you the past will continue to have a future!
