This volume presents 50 of the best-known images by Italian photographer Nino Milgiori (born 1926), selected from his three popular series Gente, Muri and Manifesti Strappati. As Corrado Benigni points out in the introductory essay, Migliori's work is a reflection on the traces of the individual.

Nino Migliori helped define postwar Italian photography, but his own work, which is varied, visually inventive and technically innovative, can be hard to categorize. This series of altered Polaroids are all of the above--they are created by "Polapressure," which is to intervene during the development of a Polaroid with spatulas and sharp points, influencing its texture and composition in gestures--and with results--not unlike painting. The technique's dreamy, half-real, half-fictional look is ideal for art about a mythical place, earthly paradise.

Layers of torn posters, chipped and peeling stucco and plaster, ghostly images formed by time and nature, childlike sketches by an unknown hand: these images and more can be found in this volume which focuses exclusively on walls. Since 1950, photographer Nino Migliori has been observing what we often overlook--and capturing its loveliness so that we can then see it. This beautifully printed book renders walls, often shot abstracted or fragmented beyond the figurative, to be strangely compelling. Presented here is another strong testiment to the fact that Migliori has developed some of the most articulated and interesting photographic research in European image culture.
This monograph, Signs, is dedicated to Nino Migliori, one of the old masters of photography who had a significant effect on the history of Italian imagery after World War II. Signs presents a braod range of his production which has always been marked by creativity, versatility, and innovation. Included here are Miglori's portraits, landscapes, architecture, street scenes, abstract imagery, and polaroids.
