The book was written to accompany a photographic exhibition, organized with the participation of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan and the Fatebenefratelli Hospital. The aim is to create a positive dialogue between medicine and art, through exhibitions or cycles of events ehich make the scientific contribution of doctors and the human warmth of people who have experienced depression and succeeded in conquering the illness available to the public.

"Beyond the Dark" is the name of this exhibition of photographs by Luca Artioli: a collection of about 100 images which set out to portray the human mind, inviting us to think about depression and which, more particularly, suggest a way out of the dark tunnel of depression and back into the light and good health. An artistic itinerary which stems from the personal, intimate experience of the photographer. Despite the subject of the book, it is neither disturbing nor dramatic in its content.
