Additional Information: This book represents the culmination of a research project on the photo-book *Un paese* which was financed by a British Academy grant in 2002. It publishes for the first time important archival documents relating to the collaboration between the two authors of *Un paese*, the US photographer Paul Strand and the Italian writer and scriptwriter Cesare Zavattini, one of the protagonists of Neo-realist cinema. These documents include both previously unpublished photographs by Strand and the complete correspondence between Strand and Zavattini (originally in Italian, French and English, here translated into Italian), spanning over twenty years. The substantial introduction, 'Archeologia di *Un paese*', analyses the significance of these archival documents as the basis for a new interpretation of *Un paese* which reads this seminal photo-book as an engagement with the history of modernism to search for an alternative aesthetic capable of addressing the needs of the postwar era.
