"Vita intima di Aprilia" [The intimate life of Aprilia] by Toni Thorimbert is the author's portrait of an Italian brand spanning everything from the designer plans developed at the Centro Stile to the technological research that goes into the races all the way to the MotoGP races themselves.
Along with the presentation of Ghost Book Numero Tre at the Piaggio Museum Auditorium, set for Monday 20 November, a photography exhibition will be inaugurated focusing on photos from Toni Thorimbert's project for Ghost Book, which looks at the world of Aprilia, from the Centro Stile in Noale to the MotoGP box at the most recent San Marino Grand Prix at Misano.
Toni Thorimbert is one of the most important Italian photographers. He loves motorcycle and horse races and has a Swiss passport, two daughters and a studio in Milan. Toni started out as a reporter in the '70s. Over the past few years he's become the Thorimbert everyone is familiar with.
The exhibition will include a retrospective of the Ghost Book project, which has seen the contribution of important Italian and international authors in just two years.
Along with Thorimbert's work, the exhibition includes photos by Rossano Ronci, from a project dedicated to Max Casacci (a musician and the founder of Subsonica); some photos by Davide Dutto, one of the most important photographers of celebrity chefs and the Italian food scene; two works by Pierpaolo Pitacco, art director for Rolling Stone Italia, from the Vanishing Cover project; a few images by Giorgio Racca, taken from the book Camera Bianca, by Domenico Petrellese (from a special report on a lesson given at the Saluzzo prison by celebrity chef Massimo Camia); and by Carlo Pinto, the photographer behind the cover of Ghost Numero Tre.
