Venezia, the inspiration and the light.

The liason of artist Emiliano Marinucci with Venezia begins with his deep study of the painters that created the school of the city in the renaissance. Titian and Veronese, in the XVIth century, developed a style and idea of painting based on two main elemnts: the predominance of the color over the outline and the lighter shadows. Two elements that, therere centuries later, made impressionism what it is.

The efefct is a rarefaxted existence, the outlines arte lost in favor a continous atmosphere and breathing of conmtents. A continous contact expressed in the blurred elements of light.

That melt literally, like a breath.

The definition, continously moving reflection of water, create the light of the city.

Marinucci uses these elements to tell a tale. The tale of a city in a continous silence, pervaded by this light that bounces throughthe streets, from the morning sun to the electric yellow greenish and red piercing elements of the night.

That make the city look livid and half awake.

An itinerary that looks for the persons, follows like a walk through the calli, as an opening of a stage. Or a trip through a maze. Light is the key element. like in Monteverdi and Vivaldi’s music, built on levels, vertically, then bouncing on the surface of water. Instable.
