Publisher's description: The title Travestimento translated into English means: 'disguise.' The photos collected into this book were taken between 1975 and 1980 in the southern region of Campania and are focused on the parades that took place during carnivals, in which female roles were played by men who dressed up like women, and who pretended to be women through feminine gestures. Marialba Russo is an Italian photographer. Between 1972 and 1976 she collaborated with the National Museum of Arts and Popular Traditions of Rome. Besides her personal research and exhibition activity, she collaborates with Vogue Italy and other Italian and foreign newspapers. In 1979, in the publication Il parto, Russo represented Italy with 'Venezia 79 the photograph' in the section 'European Contemporary Photography,' curated by Daniela Palazzoli, Sue Davis, and Jean-Claude Lemagny. In the last decade, the Museum of Photography of Thessaloniki and the Jin Tai Art Museum in Beijing exhibited her work l'Incanto, a volume published by Skira Milano in 2004. Her works have been displayed in many private and public collections all over the world.
