Is it possible to combine images and sounds? How can photography and writing coexist in a place that does not itself exist? The Collared Dove Sound is the work that Sabrina Ragucci has patiently woven into the suburban area of Cortesforza, the imaginary place that can be found in the works of Giorgio Falco, starting from L’ubicazione del bene published by Einaudi in 2009. Cortesforza is in reality the area southwest of Milan, “one of the most polluted places in Europe”, as Sabrina Ragucci reminds us in her work.

The Collared Dove Sound
Sabrina Ragucci / Giorgio Falco
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.
