The first woman photoreporter in a daily newspaper in Italy, when between the ’70s and the ’90s, with a camera around her neck, she told the story of a difficult city like Palermo, especially in the years of lead. Courageous witness of the horrible mafia massacres. That’s why Letizia Battaglia, dead at 87 years old and an icon of photojournalism, is not only remembered today by the world of politics, art and culture, but also by an entire country that will never forget this woman, with her hair dyed in a thousand colors and a cigarette in her hand, who knew how to be irreverent and irreverent in all circumstances, impossible not to be infected by her indomitable vitality, always projected towards the future.
