Item description for The Beatles in Rome 1965: Photographs by Marcello Geppetti by Marcello Geppetti...

"Marcello Geppetti . . . found a startling new style of shooting celebrities that would change the nature of journalism and the public's relationship with the rich and famous."-David Schonauer, American Photo magazine

Originally published in Italy, this dynamic book captures the moment when the world's most adored and electrifying rock group entered the setting of Fellini's La Dolce Vita. All of the excitement, expectation, and romance of The Beatles in 1965 is caught by the camera of Italy's most famous celebrity photographer during the height of Rome's glamorous epoch, when everyone was fabulous and anything was possible.

Marcello Geppetti's candid shots of John, Paul, George, and Ringo, their entourage and fans-from their arrival at Rome's airport to the Parco dei Principi hotel, where they held a press conference and stayed before playing four concerts-depict the glowing youthfulness and frenzy of The Beatles' Help! era. With commentaries by photographer Rolando Giambelli, Barcelona poet Ianus Pravo, and the photographer's son, Marco Geppetti.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Beatles in Rome 1965: Photographs by Marcello Geppetti?

I Should Have Known Better  Mar 30, 2007
I should have relied on the reviews and skipped this one. There's barely anything to it, and most of the photos are of poor quality. NOT a good value. Even the most fanatical Beatles devotee (a description in which I include myself)will be disappointed. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because at least the subject is worthwhile.
Captivating photographs!  Mar 1, 2007
Absolutely captivating photos! While accompanying text offers an Italian perspective and background about the photographer, the images speak for themselves - a great addition to any Beatles fan's collection!
Should have been titled Marcello Geppetti in Rome featuring the Beatles  Feb 3, 2007
At one point in "A Hard Day's Night" Paul's grandfather (Wilfred Brambell) succinctly summarizes the tedium of touring when he complains, "I thought I was supposed to be getting a change of scenery. But so far I've been in a train and a room, a car and a room, and a room and a room."

Substitute plane for train, and Italy for England, and you pretty much have the content of this slim volume, which is ostensibly about their four Rome concerts in June 1965. In the twenty-eight photos reproduced, we see the group arriving at the airport, wandering the halls of their hotel (including a fuzzy balcony shot), seated at their press conference, and finally onstage at the Teatro Adriano. Sharp-eyed fans will recognize Beatle roadies Neil Aspinall and Mal Evans and manager Brian Epstein in several shots; there are no captions accompanying any of the photos.

The text, devoted to lauding Geppetti's candid photographic style, which we are reminded (again and again) gave birth to the paparazzi style of celebrity photography, would have been better suited to a retrospective of the man's oeuvre. Even commentary by Rolando Giambelli, who attended one of the shows and is identified as a member of The Beatle People Association of Italy, offers little on the group, presenting his recollections only as a context from which to further praise the photographer.

Marcello's photos would have been much better served illustrating a booklet accompanying a CD of their Rome press conference or (better yet) a Beatleg of their shows. This is the kind of niche Beatles book you could browse in five minutes and never miss reading again.

Save your money.

With Love From Italy to All  Jan 17, 2007
What a delightful treat! Marcello Geppetti's photographs of the Beatles' 1965 tour in Rome is sure to captivate all who see them.

I loved coming across more information about Beatle concerts in Europe; these photographs bring home the fun, joy and laughter that the Beatles in 1965 shared.
