BASSOTTO, Enzo and Raffaello. Borgo Nuovo.

(Verona): Centro Rinascita Editore, 1980.  First edition.  Small oblong photo.  Unpaginated.  Introductory texts by Edoardo Sanguineti and Giorgio Bragaja.  A beautiful photo essay depicting life in a working class borough on the outskirts of the city of Verona. The 83 full-page black and white photos explore the community through portraiture that is direct, and yet expressive, showing people in both interior and street settings. Wonderful and deceptively simple work firmly in a tradition of Italian Neorealist photography.  A very good copy in wrappers, crease to bottom corner.
