The practice of organizing groups of photographs around a theme refl ects the narrative tradition that expects pictures to tell stories, a practice reinforced by picture magazines. The Alinaris understood these expectations and capitalized on them in creating their catalog of Italy, founded on their desire to portray "Bella Italia." The company is still a major photographic publisher of illustrative material with an archive of over 200,000 negatives.
