City Art - Venezia "Acqua Granda"

The Basilica of San Marco together with the bell tower and the beautiful square, the Doge's Palace, a masterpiece of Venetian Gothic and the seat of the doge in the Republic of the Serenissima, the bridge of sighs and prisons, the rialto bridge, and the church of La Salute, are the best known symbols of the city and the Veneto in the world.

Description

This work was created following the tragic event, renamed by Venetians as "Acqua Granda", which occurred on November 12, 2019 and involved the entire lagoon city. A peak tide in fact exceeded 185 cm, submerging 80% of Venice, causing enormous damage to the city and its artistic heritage. The artist's work highlights this last aspect through a clear division that sees, on the one hand the upper part smooth and chrome (as if to emphasize the strength and splendor of the city), on the other hand the lower part black and ruined as a result of the passage of water. With a critical vein, the intent is therefore to make clear the problem of safeguarding Venice.

Mixed media on multilayer wood.

Dimensions: cm. 179,4 x 33,1
