  • The first book by Niccolò Berretta, who has photographed the people that live and transit through Rome's biggest railway station for over ten years
Full Description
With 25,000 square metres and over 150 million passengers each year, Rome’s Termini Station is the biggest railway station in Italy, and the fifth largest in Europe. Since 2008 Niccolò Berretta has photographed the ultimate ‘non-place’. With photographs of commuters, homeless people, tourists and regulars. Stazione Termini is a book with over 500 images that does not fall into the trap of political or social commentary. Rather, it depicts the essence of a train station: each unique but common to all big cities.
“Termini is in a limbo between big city and third world, between modernism and primordial hardship. A very peculiar place, but always transient, one that you go to get somewhere else, where you don’t stop for longer than you need to, mainly because you don’t want to. This is the exact opposite of what Niccolò Berretta does. A young photographer from Rome who has been spending a disproportionate amount of time in and around the station since 2009, photographing people. Both the transient ones and those that live there and make it the big, wonderful mess that it is.” Giulio Squillacciotti, Vice Italy

Text in English and Italian.
