Tony Gentile is the most famous, but paradoxically also the most obscure, photographer among Italians familiar with a photograph he took that is so exceptional in nature that it became an icon of contemporary Italian history. Actually, everyone knows the photograph: it has been published a million times in newspapers and books, it is found on courthouse gables, at anti-Mafia associations, at political events and in books about contemporary history. I’m talking about the extraordinary photograph of Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, sharing a private word. An image that was added to the family album of entire generations.
