Marco Zucco considers the tension between delicate art, centuries old, and the freshness of a youthful male body. Read more below.
Feltre, Italy, a town located at the slopes of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site, boasts ancient origins, starting from the Reti population that joined the Roman Empire in the first century B.C., when the city also became a municipium.
Despite its small size, Feltre is a jewel of art and culture -- it is in this context that Marco Zucco brought his photographic vision to its most important public cultural places.
The late-16th-century Bovio-Cumano Palace houses a museum of wrought iron unique in the world. It was founded as a bequest of the famous blacksmith Carlo Rizzarda to safeguard his important collection of masterpieces, including paintings and sculptures by well-known artists of the 19th and 20th centuries such as Felice Casorati, Egon Schiele, Giovanni Fattori, Telemaco Signorini, Gaetano Previati, Guglielmo Ciardi, Eugene Boudin, Carlo Carra, Adolfo Wildt, and Tancredi.
Inside the Palazzo della Ragione (Reason Palace) lies the Sena theater, also called little Fenice because it was designed by the same architect as the famous Venetian theater, Giannantonio Selva.
In the pictures you can also see the civic museum and the palaces Tomitano and Borgasio.
