When tradition meets beauty: Monica Bellucci, Bianca Balti and Simone Nobili capture the essence of the Italian family
They look like they just walked off the set of a black&white Italian comedy shot in the South of Italy: they could be the Sofia Loren or the Anna Magnani ofCinema Italiano, but they are Monica Bellucci and Bianca Balti, protagonists, together with Simone Nobili of the Dolce&Gabbana SS/12 woman campaign by Giampaolo Sgura.
These shots have all the right ingredients to represent the values of Italy: there is the joy of a sunny afternoon at the seaside, the playfulness of a large family reunited, tradition, love, passion.
The core of these powerful, intense photographs is the Italian family , majestically interpreted by the three renowned Italian models: the strong bond between the protagonists, the connection to each other, the love shared in moments of daily life is beautifully represented like old family photographs with a cinematic quality.
Also, how many foreign women can represent all of this with their beauty? Monica Bellucci and Bianca Balti are Italian goddesses, and it couldn't be otherwise. They have fire in their eyes and they are fierce as lionesses in their gestures.
They look protective and provocative, a perfect mix of the modern women that shelters tradition and transgression. Who couldn’t love that?
