Massimo Vitali
Standing Still


For over twenty-five years, Massimo Vitali has been photographing the spaces in our society where people congregate––nightclubs, concerts, parks and, above all, beaches. The absolute protagonists of Vitali’s photography are, therefore, us––as subjectivity and as collectivity––we who, over time, modify the way we inhabit spaces and weave interpersonal relationships, in a delicate balance between congregation and dispersion, presence and absence, crowds and solitudes.
The exhibition at COTM 2023 presents a selection of Vitali’s iconic works from the ’90s to the present day.


Massimo Vitali (b.1944, Como, Italy) lives and works in Lucca, Tuscany. His large-scale color images have been exhibited worldwide, at important museums and foundations.
