VeneXia is not the right way to write ‘Venice’ in the local dialect. That’s ‘Venessia’. But only we venetians know what tipe of sound is connected with the letter X, which is a double SS as in the pronunciation of the word ‘streSS’. That’s why for me it’s Venexia.
This work originates from two strong and deeply radicated needs (that only in recent times I was able to translate into words):
On the one side the need to record memories of my youth in this unique environment in which I was bred. On the other side I want to pay my homage to this Island and its Lagoon, which are both perpetually misunderstood and portrayed on the edge of the ridiculous.
This is what you can see only if you’ve been living here in the teenage years.
Shooting goes on with drinking, and while one hand has the camera, the other one is grasping a bottle of beer or a glass of wine.
Only friends here.
This is Venice at its core. So used to all the things, the beautiful things we have here, the instinct is to leave them in the background.
