The photographer Ghigo Roli works in Italy and abroad, having a long experience in different fields: cultural heritage, geographical and travel photography, aerial photography, facsimile reproductions, photography of vintage vehicles. He especially distinguishes himself for the ultra-high resolution Gigapixel photography, which he chose to realise an important photographic campaign of the entire Sistine Chapel on a 1: 1 scale.
He tackles photographic campaigns of great complexity from the initial conception to the final realisation, overcoming organisational and technical problems.
He accomplished a very remarkable campaign to illustrate a complete atlas of the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi. These photographs have a particular historical and artistic importance since they were used for the restorations of the works of art after the 1997 earthquake.
He has worked a lot in the editorial sector, publishing about forty books on art and geography, as well as plenty of tourist guides for Italian and foreign publishers. He has also produced numerous reportages on assignment for some of the most prestigious international magazines. Ghigo Roli’s photographs have been collected into a vast archive of over 200.000 images, which is available for editorial, commercial, advertising and academic uses.
