What you have in your hands is a family album. A family of strangers, united by being themselves unknown to those who observe them in photos
One day in October 2015 some amateur family pictures have been purchased from Ivana Marrone in a flea market. After some time these photos have been sent to writers, cultural operators, journalists and singer-songwriters in order to bring them back in time with a new story, specially created for them, a new life handed over to anyone who wants to read it. These are Riscatti (ransoms). The book has been published by RVM Hub with three different covers: each one reproducing a pattern of decorated book jackets and endpapers of the 5th and 19th Century coming from the collection of the Guerniana Library in San Daniele del Friuli (UD) and the Letterform Archive of San Francisco (CA). These decorated motifs and the light one-side coated dust cover remind of the papers used to preserve books and photo album or to coat the inside of furniture, boxes, cases and drawers. ---PREORDER--- Authors: Davide Toffolo, Giovanni Truppi, Simona Pampallona, Errico Buonanno, Giorgio Cappozzo, Francesca De Salvia, Luca Longobardi, Francesco Di Bella, Carlo Virzì, Flavio Soriga, Alessandro Fullin, Giorgio Zanchini, Roberto Saviano, Davide Orecchio, Giorgio Nerone, Fernando Masullo, Andrea Bozzo, Dente, Francesca Mancini, Francesco Pacifico, Alessandro Mazzarelli, Irene Dionisio, Giuseppe Rizzo, Massimiliano Coccia, Giuseppe Catozzella, Noemi Gentiluomo, Antonella Lattanzi, Valerio Valentini, Carlo Ruggiero, Claudia Ferri, Corrado Fortuna, Aldo Nove, Iosonouncane, Vins Gallico, Giuditta Sin, Giordano Meacci, Maria Rita Di Bari, Riccardo Festa, Chiara Gamberale, Matteo B.
