about

The southern part of Trentino was one of the most contested regions of the Italian-Austrian front during World War 1. Even a hundred years after the end of the war, deep traces of the fighting are still visible in the landscape, bringing the drama of history in conversation with nature. Taking inspiration from diaries and memoirs of Italian and Austro-Hungarian soldiers, photographer Andrea Contrini undertook a journey to follow the old front line from Lake Garda to the Pasubio. The result of that journey, Echoes in Silence captures how the passing of time has transformed the battlefields into places of peace.
 
Echoes in Silence features one hundred and fifty color photographs organized geographically and includes a map of the complete area, illustrating the battlefields as well as the Italian and Austro-Hungarian fortified lines of the following locales: Massiccio del Pasubio, Piccole Dolomiti, Monte Zugna, Passo Buole, Alto Garda, Massiccio del Baldo, Vallagarina, Vallarsa, and Val di Gresta. The photographs capture rarely seen vantage points of the battlefields and offer a moving memorial of the war.
 
Andrea Contrini is a photographer living in Rovereto, Italy.
