By descent to the present owner
This portfolio of images, inscribed ‘Warm memories from your Swiss friends,’ comes originally from the collection of Vittorio Vidali. The photographs depict various locales in Mexico City and its surroundings from 1938-1940. Although architectural sites, national forests, and dramatic features of the Mexican landscape are numerous, perhaps the most interesting images capture the political and social temperature of the period; one photograph shows a parade on Mexican Independence Day, while another captures a Mexico City street choked with rural farmers on horseback, riding in solidarity.
Vittorio Vidali returned to Trieste in 1947, the year this album is dated. Vidali continued to be active within the Communist Party, and after 1954, when Trieste became part of Italy again, Vidali served as a member of Italian Parliament.
