This fascinating book details icons of three crucial decades of the 20th century, personalities who left their unique mark in the field of politics, art, music, and movie. Santi Visalli lived at the same distance from the famous people he decided to photograph as the general public did. He wanted to show what we all saw, but from his own special perspective. Every one of Visalli's photographs is a surprise, because the only study of the subject consists in what the photographer knows, reads and understands; not in a fake interview, in a studied pose or in a statement. Visalli looks through the lens of the culture of his time, and his pictures capture the period with precision. This is an atlas of contemporary American history, it's the Sistine Chapel of what the USA was in those years. Portraits in the book include: Rebecca Keinmann, Salvador Dal, Andy Warhol, Leigh Taylor Young, Ultraviolet, Alberto Sordi, Andr Kertsz, Pablo Neruda, Bruno Bettelheim, Timothy Leary, Alberto Burri, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa, Yevgeny Yevtushenko, Luciana Pigntelli, Mario Soldati, Arthur Miller, Jesse Owens, Cassius Clay, Peggy Fleming, Ruggero Orlando, Martin Luther King, Jr., Aristitelis Onassis, Robert Kennedy, Jackie Kennedy, John Kennedy Jr., Caroline Kennedy, Ted Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Farah Diba with the Shah and prince Ciro, Charlie Chaplin, Sophia Loren, Jackie Bisset, Jane Fonda with Roger Vadim, Marlon Brando, Charles Bronson, Brigitte Bardot, Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Isabella Rossellini, Anna Moffo, Liv Ullmann, Elliott Gould, Anthony Quinn, Vittorio Gassman, Giancarlo Giannini, Burt Lancaster, Lee Marvin, Paul Newman, Jack Nicholson, Peter O'Toole, Arthur Penn, Natalie Wood, The Beatles, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Sammy Davis Jr., Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Ella Fitzgerald, Liza Minnelli, Frank Sinatra, Raffaella Carr, Domenico Modugno, Pippo Baudo, Yves, Montand, Barbra Streisand, Herbert Von Karajan, Carla Fracci, Margot Fonteyn, Rudolf Nureyev, Mstislav Rostropovich, Maria Callas.
