UPDATED JANUARY 17th 2012: Added five new campaign images photographed by Mariano Vivanco via TFS.
Mariano Vivanco photographed his first Dolce & Gabbana mainline campaign images featuring Italian actors: Giuseppe Fiorello, Francesco Scianna, Filippo Nigro, Thomas Trabacchi, Primo Reggiani and Chiara Francini. He also made a cameo as the photographer in the third image, below.
The photos are intentionally candid and reminiscent of scenes from an Italian-style comedy, where actors portray life in a Southern Italian village: a baptism, Sunday with the family, a portrait with mother, at the bar with friends, afternoons at the beach, courting the village beauty, guy talk, a stolen kiss on the docks and a birthday party with relatives.
The spontaneous images portray fragments of real life and highlight the values of Dolce & Gabbana: Italian spirit, tradition, family, love, passion, joie de vivre and the ability to capture the modernity of the past and to render it contemporary.
