How can we as individuals and a community preserve one of the world's great cities?
The city of Venice is at extreme risk. What threatens Venice and how can it be protected? Gianni Berengo Gardin, Italy’s most famous living photographer, took on this challenge, responding with powerful photographs and an influential exhibition which triggered debates and protests over the city’s future.
Venice of the Venetians examines Berengo Gardin’s photographs, a testimony to life in Venice over the past sixty years, culminating with his exhibition, Venice and the Big Ships. This controversial exhibition revealed the complex and profound implications of the cruise ships traveling through the heart of Venice, highlighting the challenges confronting the local community.
This film recounts the city’s complex story, forcing the audience to confront Venice’s uncertain future and its implications for preserving global heritage.
