In the 20th century, modern architecture thrived in Cuba and a wealth of buildings was realized prior to the revolution 1959 and in its wake. The designs comprise luxurious nightclubs and stylish hotels, sports facilities, elegant private homes and apartment complexes. Drawing on the vernacular, their architects defined a way to be modern and Cuban at the same time – creating an architecture oscillating between tradition and avantgarde. Audacious concrete shells, curving ramps, elegant brises-soleils and a fluidity of interior and exterior spaces are characteristic of an airy, often colorful architecture well-suited to life in the tropics. New photographs and drawings were specially prepared for this publication. A biographical survey portraits the 40 most important Cuban architects of the era.

Palermo Panorama is Mauro D'Agati's love letter to his beloved hometown, a raw portrait that shows Palermo's charm and grit in equal measure. The book comprises 13 chapters, each dedicated to a distinct series, which all grew organically over time to form a complex picture of the city. Here among others are D'Agati's very first photos, black-and-white street portraits taken while still a student; the waste-littered Termini Beach, a summer destination for the people of Palermo's suburbs; the abandoned and neglected Vucciria neighborhood; portraits of wedding photographers and singers at local music festivals; the Capuchin Catacombs; and transvestites on Via Roma near Palermo's central station. Regardless of his subject, D'Agati portrays Palermo's resilient characters and crumbling beauty with compassion and without judgment. For many years I've been taking photographs of Palermo and its inhabitants, living side by side with them and using my sense of belonging as an occasional tool. This book is both a declaration of love and an attempt to access the city without fear or favor--a very personal take which I hope unveils the true colors of Palermo. Mauro D'Agat

Mauro D'Agati met Marzia on a beach near Palermo in 2007 and began taking pictures of her and her family during their summer vacation. The unexpected ease of interaction between photographer and subject encouraged D'Agati to undertake a series depicting Marzia's transition from childhood into adolescence, with the ambition of spending several days with her family every year. The resulting five volumes of this publication show the family over a period of about five years: their summer vacations on an illegal camping lot in the industrial area of Termini Imerese, the celebration of Marzia's and her brother Claudio's First Communion, family reunions with abundant food and games and the curiosities and family portraits at nonna's house in Palermo's deprived Zen 2 district. Throughout this close photographic chronicle Marzia represents the epitome of the anti-model, defying prefabricated aesthetic standards while candidly emanating joy and self-confidence.

Palermo Unsung tells the story of singers, cantanti neomelodici, performing at the music festivals in the south of Italy and their frenzied public. It is a story of the common man, ragamuffin, culturally corrupt but human and paradoxically authentic. A 20 minute DVD, assembling pictures by Mauro D'Agati and soundtrack by Domenico Sciajno, gives a sense of the vibrant acoustics and emotions of these popular festivals.

Each morning Massimo wakes up and dons fishnet stockings, faux leopard skin sweater, miniskirt and incredibly high platform shoes. These black- and -white images that tell the tale of Massimo's life in Palermo were taken by Mauro D'Agati (b. 1968), while roaming the city's small streets, following Massimo like a cat, peeking into houses, stores, marketplaces, and processions.

In December 2012, Mauro D'Agati escaped the Art Basel event at Miami Beach in agony and headed south. Distrito Federal is the outcome of almost two months spent in Mexico City. The book represents a cross section of life in the pitiless Mexican capital, which has one of the highest police officer to resident ratios in the world. Like in Napule Shot, one of his former books, D'Agati tells the city's story through a variety of characters and locations--wrestlers, weddings, local bands, coroners, and gangs of drugged-up youngsters, the Colonia Centro on the roofs of the city or the degraded Colonia Juarez Pantitlán with the highest crime rate in the country. Distrito Federal unfolds the blunt but sometimes beautiful picture of a society deadened by drugs, violence and constant fight for survival.
