Over het boek
Poggioreale is a small abandoned village in Sicily, just outside the city of Palermo. It was abandoned shortly after the Belice Earthquake in 1968. To this day all that remains of the old village is a memory of the past, this book is to preserve the memory for future generations to come.

My name is Giacomo (the guy on the right) and I have been taking pictures for over a decade. I have been lucky enough to win awards, travel to some amazing places, and meet amazing people on the way, My first book titled Poggioreale , comes from the heart. Its a photo journal of my mothers hometown and documents the current state of decay of the village of Poggioreale, after the Beliz earthquake in 1963. This book became the inspiration for a sellout exhibition, the book being sold exclusively by a large retailer in Sydney, and finally placing third in the International Photography Awards Self Published Fine Art Book awards in New York. I give everything to my art and this book is no exception, its best viewed in the large format and with the premium trimmings it has to offer.
