With its evocative images, this book immerses us in a world of dolce vita, youthful enthusiasm, the joy and beauty of Italian holidays -- an atmosphere filled with young girls' laughter, stifling heat, the sounds of crashing surf and the playful cat-and-mouse games of the sexes. And he also tells us a story -- a tale of people of all generations who leave home each year to return to a familiar place that is close to their hearts, where they pursue the very same holiday rituals year in and year out: Miss Rimini for one short summer season, a passionate kiss on the beach, nightly parties in the bars and restaurants, the joyful exuberance of youthful cliques seeking to experience everything life offers nowhere else in just a few short weeks and to forget what everyday life is. With his concentrated, atmospheric images, which bear the imprint of a fascinated, passionate observer, Claude Nori succeeds masterfully in capturing that mixture of Mediterranean lifestyle and carefree holiday spirit that awakens memories and longings in us all.
