Could this be because Chiaramontelooks at Berlin with the eyes of a Sicilian? At anyrate, his is not the official outlook of the airy fairyBerlin and tourism industries. An eye sensitive tothe beauty of ruins from Potsdam to Potsdamer Platz,summer warmth, blue skies and the warm glow of redbrick distinguish Chiaramontes photographs. Andof course Chiaramonte also reveres the architecturefrom Schinkel to Aldo Rossithat very formal severitythat allows the city to spring out of the wastelands,where the lines of fate in the history of thecity cross.
