An installation composed of a cycle of ten previously unseen works by Venetian painter, architect and set designer Giovanni Soccol. The artist has chosen ten symbolic architectures that overlook the Grand Canal, starting from the Dogana da Mar to the Church of San Simeone. The theme of the cycle of paintings arises from a vision of a Venetian architecture that rises from the water where, reflecting itself, it dissolves. Soccol wished to depict the charm of an apparition that might vanish, be- longing more to a dream than to reality. A nocturnal light connects and unites the elements, conferring on the architecture a metaphysical mood.
