First edition of this engaging photo-essay on Milanese life, illustrated with 54 rich full-page photogravures.

This photographic treatment of Milan “decisively reveals the influence of the ‘Swingin’ 60s… The book’s whole emphasis [is] on the dynamic, go-ahead character of Italy’s economic hub and most cosmopolitan city… This is a vibrant, energetic, sharp and covetable book, and if its style tends to win out over substance, that was the 60s that was” (Parr & Badger, 224). Text by Dino Buzzati in Italian.

Interior fine. Minor rubbing to foot of spine. A near-fine copy.
