Giovanni Armenio is an Italian photographer whose work is influenced by his research in scenography in theater, cinema, and opera. Fascinated by the highly theatrical cityscapes of Rome, Versailles, and Venice, among many others, Armenio uses digital media, painting, and photomontage to capture their beauty.
His photograph, A. To Rome IV (Apulia to Rome), combines the Mediterranean landscapes of Apulia and Imperial Rome. The image is a tribute to the artist’s two worlds: the south of Italy, where he was born, and Rome, which was always inspired him.
