GIULIA CRISPIANI (DAI, 2017) is a visual artist and writer based in Rome, where she is an editor for NERO Editions, but you will also often find her in Tehran. "A place where to witness the glorious encounter between revolutionary aesthetics and publishing was the Safavi Book Bazar, north of Tehran’s Enghelab Square (Revolution Square), which was chosen to display forty protest posters related to the revolution" Read Giulia's very personal love declaration to the city and to the people who inhabit her: Tehran, 1979–2019
