The essay offers a detailed analysis of Giuliano Briganti's book «La Maniera italiana», which was published in 1961 as the first volume of a series of books entirely illustrated with color photographs, edited by Editori Riuniti in collaboration with the GDR-based Verlag der Kunst (Dresden). Thanks to unpublished archival sources, this study reconstructs the story of a singular episode of art-historical popularisation in which Roberto Longhi was editor-in-chief and the art critic Antonio Del Guercio was responsible for the editorial office.
