Vito Fiorenza (1927—March 23, 2015) was a photographer born in New York.
Fiorenza first visited Sicily in the late 1940s, then in the mid-1950s, Fiorenza and his wife traveled back to Italy; some of these photographs were reproduced in his self-published volume Sicilian Town.
In 1954 he won a Village Camera Club prize and in 1955 three of his Sicilian scenes were included in Edward Steichen’s blockbuster The Family of Man exhibition, one of them, a group portrait of a Sicilian family, was grouped with others in the central display, at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) which subsequently toured the world.
Fiorenza died after a short illness on March 23, 2015.
