Photographs: Collecchio Astrophile Group
Foreword by: Corrado Lamberti
Thirty photographs that are the fruit of the “crazy” adventures (lying in wait in the dead of night, in all sorts of weather conditions, travelling to far-flung lands) of a group of impassioned astrophiles, selected from thousands of shots. The photos are commented by quotes and aphorisms from all periods of history, in the original language. At the end of the volume, the quotes and introductory articles are translated into six languages: Italian, English, French, German, Arabic and Japanese. The Universe as interpreted by the Art Director Fermo Tanzi, in a creatively presented volume that required a huge investment in terms of both time and energy and takes the reader/observer on a boundless meditational/emotional journey. Foreword by the astrophysicist Corrado Lamberti.
Gruppo Astrofili Collecchio
Fermoeditore Publishing carries out a number of projects that differ in terms of content and creativity, with graphics, images and material fine-tuned in order to transmit the soul of each work as authentically and effectively as possible. The print runs are limited, so Fermoeditore Publishing books are rare items, crafted with exquisite paper and bindings and featuring illustrations and images created by talented hands. The Collecchio Astrophile Group is made up of a group of enthusiastic stargazers revolving around the figure of Alberto Zinelli, a fervent astronomy lover since 1971. Their photographs have obtained awards and outstanding results in numerous photographic competitions in the sector.
