This project is conceived from the idea of enhancing a cultural and historical heritage that belongs to us: the city of Venice.
Acqua Alta as a tool to link all these techniques starting from a unique phenomenon.

The main idea has been recreating, through the plots of the fabric, all the colors and textures that with time have appeared on the plasters and marbles scattered everywhere on the Venetian walls, due to the erosive action of sea water.
No less important is the Murano glass craft, and the trade of spices and essences that are precious keys to Mediterranean’s business.
