Italian fine art and fashion photographer Alexo Wandael will launch the latest chapter in his project ITALIANY, on Dec. 4 at The James Royal Palm Hotel, coinciding with the Miami Art Basel festival. The exhibition is in partnership with Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Italy’s No. 1 premium beer as the first part of the brand’s two-year Storie di Stile campaign that spotlights stories of talented Italians in the United States and their impact on style and culture.

ITALIANY is a visual celebration of influential Italians in the United States, manifested through a series of bold black-and-white portraits.

Some of the Miami identities that Wandael has captured include hotelier Miky Grendene of Casa Tua, founder of Del Toro accessories Matthew Chevallard, hospitality icon Nicola Siervo, Wolfsonian curator Silvia Barisione, style leader and heir to La Perla Martina Borgomanero Basabe and photographer Luca Artioli. Each individual story in this exhibition tells a highly personal account of an Italian living and working in the US, but together these stories tell a broader narrative about the impact of Italian style in the United States.
