SOLO Annual 2023 on Psicografici Editore

The volumes of the SOLO series stem from the idea of wanting to give space, value, and concreteness to the talent of artists from different backgrounds: illustrators, photographers, tattoo artists; but also collage artists, street artists, and designers. Volumes that narrate different forms of art, letting the talent of those who conceived them speak for itself.

Cover Photo - The New Wines of Mount Etna on Gemelli Press, Benjamin North Spencer

Making wine on Europe's largest active volcano doesn't come easy. Frequent changes in topography, elevation, and weather influence each vintage and every winemaker has an interpretation of the evolving volcanic landscape. This is part of what makes Etna so exciting. The wines are as inviting as the terrain. For millennia the mountain served as a backdrop in the development of Europe. Today, the UNESCO Heritage Site is a destination for the world. American wine expert Benjamin Spencer goes beyond the vines to explore the history and rebirth of the region that has everyone talking about Sicily.

SOLO Fotografia Italia 2 is the second volume of the series dedicated to emerging photographers in the Italian scene.

A diverse collection that embraces different perspectives and artistic sensibilities through lights, shadows, perspectives, and colors. SOLO's mission is to make accessible works that are primarily shared on social media, a space where everything flows and it's too easy to get lost.


This magazine is a collection of photographers sharing their minimalist stories. Each photographer has explored a different area of minimalism so each photograph is completely unique. I've been published here with my "dualism" photo. More info on my website.

"This volume shows the results of the architectural design workshop “Cinque Progetti per il Lungomare di Levante” held by prof. Uwe Schröder (Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule, RWTH Aachen University) in the classes of professors Emanuele Fidone, Vito Martelliano and Bruno Messina at Università degli Studi di Catania, SDS Siracusa - DICAR. It presents a method of understanding and representing the spatiality of the city as prerequisite to urban design. The five projects confront themselves with the area of Ortygia north-eastern seaside, interpreting the relationships between the inner spaces of the town and the outer open spaces of the sea."
