La Dolce Vita: Vintage Photos of Italy in the 1980s

A women in a bright Summer dress reading with her feet dipped in a fountain. Stylish kids eating ice cream on a pier. A young couple sharing an passionate kiss on a park bench. These are just some of the most memorable images of Italy in the 1980s, captured in Charles H. Traub‘s new vintage photography book, Dolce Via: Italy in the 1980s.
The photographs bring us back to quaint Italian times with their voyeuristic depictions of casual street romance set against Italy’s striking classical architecture. Purchase the book to see all of Traub’s photography, a colorful sample found below.

p.s. These photos got you in the Dolce Vita mindset? Spend a day on a yacht cruising around Portofino with handsome Hollywood actors.
