Day 3: At Punta della Dogana

14 Sep 2021|

  At the very tip of Punta della Dogana, teachers Rebeka Vidrih and Martina Malešič had a lecture on Merchants and theater. How exciting to understand the importance of this very location in Venice... A citation, chosen from the two lectures: "The project for the World Theatre is characterized by three facts, having a precise usable space, even if not specified, placing it as a volume according to the shape of the Venetian movements being on water". - Aldo Rossi

Day 2: Dragons, myths and mysteries

Anne Marie Fisker is enlightening the students further on the dragons and other creatures that roam within San Marco square and still to this day is a great source of myths and mysteries within Venice.   A citation from a small interview with the teacher, Anne Marie Fisker: “It must be embarrassing not to have enough sculptures of dragons - and have to use a crocodile instead”
