The photographic exhibition In ogni dove (Everywhere) at the Library of the House of Literature presents 21 shots taken from 2019 to today by the photographer and storyteller Rino Bianchi. They are portraits of poets and writers photographed in their places of study and writing, in condominium courtyards, parks, cities or small villages. The shots therefore include the long period from the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic to the recent restart. The photos are able to capture the most intimate and deep dimension of the people depicted, fixing the expressions, the looks, the gestures, in a journey through the human universe of these writers and poets, who, with their art, have opposed a silent resistance in a difficult time, pinning their hopes on the future. And here those faces appear confident, reassuring, almost wanting to take courage, strengthened by their love for culture and art. Rino Bianchi, born in Anagni in 1965, in addition to being a photographer and a storyteller, is also a photojournalist who concentrates his works on society, the environment, customs and cultural landscape. He collaborates with Italian and foreign newspapers and is the author of some publications including Piombo and carta. Stories of the siege of Sarajevo, edited by Simone Marrucci and Roberto Guiggiani, photos by Rino Bianchi and Mario Boccia, In Rome, poets are a flower of rock: critical profiles by Giorgio Carpaneto, edited by Anna Manna, Made in Mompeo.

In 2012 he also created Corrispondenze 21 poems and 21 photographs, an exhibition sponsored by Unesco.
