Renzo Piano. Progetti d'acqua

Wednesday, 7 November, 2018 - 10:19

Fondazione Emilio and Annabianca Vedova announce the extension to January 6, 2019 of the video installation Renzo Piano. Progetti d'acqua

In view of the considerable success aroused, the Fondazione Emilio and Annabianca Vedova and its President Alfredo Bianchini announce the extension to January 6, 2019 of the video installation Renzo Piano. Water projects, curated by Fabrizio Gazzarri and set up at the Magazzino del Sale (Zattere 266). The show brings together 16 projects chosen by Renzo Piano himself, all conceived in relation to water. Thanks to the ‘mise-en-scène’, designed and mounted by Studio Azzurro, visitors will be able to immerse themselves in a visual and acoustic environment providing an exhilarating tour through the architectural career of Renzo Piano, also told by the introductive video made by Twin Studio.  The Magazzino del Sale navettes, whose ‘day job’ is to move around Emilio Vedova’s large canvases, have been recruited to support eight huge ultra-thin screens.  The itinerary begins with a project created for the first performance of Luigi Nono’s Prometeo in the church of San Lorenzo in Venice in 1984, for which Emilio Vedova devised the lighting scheme. From Venice the tour continues through Athens, Oslo, London, Genoa, Amsterdam, Paris and New York before coming back to Venice and the Vedova Foundation itself with the project generously offered by Renzo Piano just ten years ago, shortly after the death of his friend Emilio.
