What do we "see" when we think of Italy? How is our sense of that country, its people and culture formed, what conditions it? Looters, Photographers, and Thieves suggests that our visualization and relationship to a place like Italy is the result of a long and complex series of constructed images that have their origins in the ideology of nation building.
