the project

Thirty-one Venetians portrayed by the photographer for “(R) esistere in Venezia”, the photographic project in which della Corte captured the image of the resilient citizens who live and work in Venice and resist the hordes of “hit and run” tourists. The Venetians are portraits enveloped by the crowd of tourists, amidst a vertigo of shapes and colours that almost seem to emit noises, rattles, shouts, representing “the city of strangers’ plunge into the sound magma during the day”.
