Description of book: A collaboration between a writer and a photographer. The Collared Dove Sound is the work that photographer Sabrina Ragucci has patiently woven into the suburban area of Cortesforza, the imaginary place that can be found in the books written by Giorgio Falco. Cortesforza is in reality the area southwest of Milan, “one of the most polluted places in Europe”. The photographs are accompanied by a short novel that G. Falco wrote for this publication, and that is the ideal continuation of the books he already published. Texts are in Italian, English and French.
The best thing about self-publishing: following every step of the production, controlling costs, sharing the knowledge
