This time, if you walk a few steps into “Casa dei Tre Oci” (House of the Three Eyes), an extraordinary building that combines neogothic and avantgarde with traditional architecture, being inspired by the traditional Venetian “Fondaco”, it will let you cover the distance between the renowned and the known.
We all know that Venice is the quintessentially photogenic city, a natural subject that imposes itself upon any author’s ambition thanks to its enchanting instruments (water, light and stone). Believe it or not, Venice has become one of the 10 most photographed places in the world also thanks to Fulvio Roiter and his incredible passion for this city.
A tale made of images of his journey from black and white to colours, from neorealist subjects to the splendours of carnival, never losing his ability to be amazed by “venetian things”.
Let us walk you through the spaces of this exhibition, partially thematic and partially chronological, going across its nine sections, that do not represent only Venice, but also his travels around Italy, Europe, South America and Africa. When you think about it, it must have been a herculean effort not to fall into the stereotypical postcard, he must have had high ethical and esthetical standards not to fall victim to the beauty of this city that often becomes routine. Do you want a proof of it? Glance through one of the three windows that open onto San Marco Basin and try not to shoot an easy picture…
