City Art - Venezia Carnival - Franchetti Palace

Tax included

Palazzo Cavalli - Franchetti is a building located in Venice next to the Accademia Bridge. Built in the second half of 1400, is an example of Gothic architecture, one of the most prestigious among those present in Venice. The facade, however, has been heavily restored, following the canons of Venetian neo-Gothic, which, however, make it distant from the formal simplicity typical of many Gothic buildings in Venice. It belongs to the Istituto Veneto di scienze, lettere ed arti and hosts frequent events and exhibitions.


Taking as its starting point the chaotic ensemble that characterizes Venice, the series "Carnival" focuses on the frenetic confusion of the city through overlapping of multiple levels. The work on the color consumes the forms of the elements, transforming them into units of meaning that overlap each other. The explosion of free color and the memories of the drawings, fragments of disjointed links, create further stratifications and spatializations. The latter, dialoguing with the underlying harmony, produce a distorted memory that generates tearing, but that tries to bind itself to the memory of the community.

Mixed media on multilayer wood.

Dimensions: cm. 74,2 x 85
