VENICE EDITION: GRANAI DELLA GIUDECCA

AT THE END OF THE ISLAND CALLED GIUDECCA, WHICH IS LOCATED SOUTH OF THE HISTORIC CENTER OF VENICE AND OVERLOOKING THE HOMONYMOUS GIUDECCA CANAL, THERE ARE THREE LARGE BUILDINGS, BUILT ON THE RUINS OF THE DANDOLO PALACE, KNOWN AS THE GRANAI DELLA REPUBBLICA.

ONCE USED TO STORE WHEAT, GRAIN AND CEREALS FOR PERIODS OF WAR AND FAMINE, TODAY THE ANCIENT REPUBLIC’S GRANARIES, THANKS TO THE THREE CONNECTING NAVES (LONGHI, CANALETTO AND CARPACCIO), THE 8-METER-HIGH CEILINGS AND PAVED FLOORS HAVE BECOME A PLACE OF INTEREST FOR UNIQUE OCCASIONS, SUCH AS THE RECENT ITALIAN RETROSPECTIVE DEDICATED TO DAVID MONTGOMERY DURING THE 74TH VENICE FILM FESTIVAL.

THE EXHIBITION, ORGANIZED BY VANITY FAIR AND POWERED BY TENDERCAPITAL, CELEBRATED THE LEGENDARY PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE SWINGING LONDON WITH A SPECTACULAR SHOW OF ICONIC FIGURES, FROM QUEEN MOTHER TO JIMI HENDRIX, FROM ALFRED HITCHCOOK TO TWIGGY, FROM SOFIA LOREN TO MONICA VITTI. UNIQUE EMOTIONS, WITH AN UNFORGETTABLE VIEW OF PIAZZA SAN MARCO: MOMENTS OF TRUE REBIRTH.
