SPORT or TROPS?
This new issue of Lancillotto e Nausica (nr. 1-2/2017 f. 48 – 136 pages) is slightly different from the previous ones:
1) A text guides the reader through a progression of reflexions and connections in order to analyse – pieces by pieces – the concept of SPORT;
2) A sequence of images uses the autonomous language of photography to propose metaphorical considerations expressed in the guiding text;
3) The captions written by writers, novelists, journalists and poets, interpret according their feelings the pictures chosen as emblems of the various moment and aspects of SPORT.
