Fiorella Iacono

Fiorella Iacono - foto di Luca Monzani

Fiorella Iacono was born in Modena and graduated there with a thesis on the poetics of William Burroughs. She writes for the journals Night Italia and Satisfiction and has contributed art criticism to the daily newspaper Il Manifesto. She catalogued Cesare Leonardi’s photographs for his study of Modena Cathedral after its restoration, published as Quando le cattedrali erano bianche (Panini, 1985). In her own photographic work she is interested in trying to express the sense of places but without reference to any preconceived cognitive perceptions.
