Venice in the postwar period was an exceptional stage and a cot for photography at the European level, with the presence of artists such as Ray, Cartier Bresson, Weston and Adams in the Correr Museum and the realization of Exhibitions, including international, including the largest Photography Biennial in 1957. This catalog thus takes into account, both parallel events, both the work of the photographers in Venice, some of which are among the most influential teachers of those years, as Paolo Monti, Ferruccio Leiss, Fulvio Roiter, Toni Del Tin, until reaching Berengo-Gardin and Joseph Bruno. The catalog highlights the cultural contribution of these photographers, in part synthesized in the "La Gondola", still active, with international repercussionsFerruccio Leissss, one of the founders of the Club Milanese, arrived in Venice in 1930, was subsequently one of the founding members of "The Compass", with Horses, Sell, Veronesi, that characterized the postwar formalist photography, in contrast to the neo-realist. Many of the "Venetian" photographers of the postwar period owe to his great lesson Leiss artist. The "La Gondola", founded by Paolo Monti and others at the end of the end of 1947, has been a long Italian tradition of photography, tra "formalism" and "neorealism", with great success, that is still alive, not only among photo enthusiasts, but among collectors and institutions.
