For the first time pictures from various Italian, Croatian and Austrian photographic archives on Istria have been assembled together in this important book published by Alinari in collaboration with CRAF. The priceless photographic material portraying the beauty of ancient Istria as it was over a century ago, with its landscapes, rugged rocks and defiant sea, is there for contemplation with recollections and flavors of a land that is historically bound to Italy both culturally and geographically. The passing of time is documented through the lens of history. The photographs in this book present us with a picture of the territory, highlighting the environmental and cultural peculiarities of the entire area in wide-ranging scenarios. Horizons expand and break through the boundaries that tie the West to the countries of the East in a perspective of European integration.
