The Way We Were: Italy in the 1980s

Throughout the 1980s, American photographer Charles H. Traub was a frequent visitor to Italy – on his travels all over the country, he was able to capture moments of intimacy and humor in everyday Italian life.  

The vintage photos are now collected together for the first time in a book called “La Dolce Via” - via means street in Italian, to underline the photographer's search for real life in the streets of Italy.

"La Dolce Via" is available here. In the meantime, check some of the photos in our slide show below.
