From the preface by Renata Codello
The very exaltation and praise of its beauty is perhaps one of the most universally recognized traits of the city of Venice. Equally popular are those “postcard” snapshots–stereotyped images that seek to reproduce grand sites of extraordinary and inimitable singularity, which are then disseminated by way of the very same endlessly repeated images. It would seem, therefore, that little or nothing should or could possibly be discovered about the lagoon city so strongly influenced by its own myth. Renato D’Agostin’s work revolves around other possibilities: he unveils the best-known architectural spaces, such as Piazza San Marco, subjecting them to a surprising elemental analysis in which the contours of the structural masses soften without losing their weight…
