Lisetta Carmi


Rejected by all publishers, the volume I travestiti  was printed and published in a few thousand copies at the expense of Sergio Donnabella in 1972 for the SD publishing house, which was created especially for this publication. No bookseller wants to display it, too scandalous, the transvestites must remain hidden on the shelves. 

A pink album halfway between an art book and an explicit book of enquiry between harshness and sobriety with texts by Lisetta Carmi herself and psychoanalyst Elvio Facchinelli, and graphic layout by Giancarlo Iliprandi.
