LOCATION: Magazzini del Sale (Zattere 266)
A new exhibition has come to Venice. Sixteen projects, selected by Renzo Piano, tell the story of architecture.
The thread between them is water. Until Novembre 25, at Magazzini del Sale in Venice, you can visit “Progetti d’Acqua” (Water projects).
This exhibition was organized by Emilio and Anna Vedova’s Foundation, officiated by Alfredo Bianchini and curated by Fabrizio Gazzari in occasion of the tenth anniversary of the works inside the Magazzini del Sale, which had started right after Emilio Vedova’s death.
The artworks, created in different places and times (from 1960 to 2017), want to show the singularity of every project and their ability to adapt to the context, respecting the historical, cultural and environmental differences.
Thanks to a great job of staging, projected and realized by Studio Azzurro, through several projections on 8 big and transparent screens, held by robotized shuttles. These shuttles have been designed by Renzo Piano, in order to make the Emilio Vedova’s huge canvas moving.
Visitors can go through a visual ambient that always moves, where designs, projects, images, and videos interchange continuously, accompanied by a sort of auditory ambient, created by Tommaso Leddi. It will be a real journey among Renzo Piano’s architecture.
Starting in Venice, this journey will continue in Athens, Oslo, London, Genoa, Paris, New York and in the end, it will come back to Venice, at Fondazione Vedova.
Open from 10.30 am to 6 pm (last entrance allowed at 5.30 pm)
Closed on Monday and Tuesday
Tickets: 8€, reduced 4€ or 6€
