Chiara Samugheo was the first woman in Italy to become a professional photographer. This book offers a testimony of the unique and innovative style of this artist, who re-interpreted the photography of those years, portraying cinema protagonist off set and working for fashion and lifestyle magazines such as Epoca, Stern, Vogue, Paris Match, Life, Vanity Fair. In addition to the sections dedicated to those actresses, film directors, actors and the couples who made the cinema of the Fifties and Sixties great, the volume also showcases the photographer’s sequences, graphic experimenting, cover pages and books.
