The life of Gian Paolo Barbieri, from his beginnings in Rome, passing through CinecittĂ  and Paris, up to his consecration. Barbieri has defined, with his photographs, the most important decades of Italian fashion. Constantly inspired by life, Barbieri brings back to us the cultural references of art, theater and cinema from which he took life, light and dimension. Although afflicted by an incurable disease, today Barbieri continues his creative path, even more inspired. A portrait between past and present, the story of a man moved by passion, studded with infinite photographic shots of incomparable artistic value, always aimed at the pursuit of beauty.
