The catalogue presents a comprehensive panorama of works of art by some of the Italian protagonists of the contemporary Mec Art scene, from the mid-1960s to the present day.
The exhibition focuses on the mechanical image, mainly photography, which over the years has been the focus of numerous artistic research, often combined with painting and the traditional idea of the picture, up to digital works, created entirely with mechanical processes.

The publication first presents in chronological order some works by the protagonists of Mec Art in Italy: Gianni Bertini, Bruno Di Bello, Elio Mariani, Mimmo Rotella and Aldo Tagliaferro.

Leaving behind the 1960s, the climate of European Nouveau Realisme and American Pop Art, the scene is taken by a heterogeneous group of authors, absolute protagonists of contemporary Italian photography, including Gabriele Basilico, Mario Cresci, Franco Fontana, Luigi Ghirri, Mario Giacomelli and Mimmo Jodice, arriving with them at the threshold of the digital era that exploded in the 1990s.

The exhibition closes with two young digital authors: Matteo Basilè, who reinvents the idea of the portrait, and Gian Paolo Tomasi, author of a hyperrealist painting.

It was realised for the exhibition Fotografando, dalla Mec art al digitale, Biblioteca Centro Cultura Nembro (Nembro, Bergamo), 8 November 2008 – 10 January 2009.
