Discover Venice from behind the lens of your photo camera. Venice born and raised professional photographer Fabio Bressanello will accompany you on a truly unforgettable 2 hour photo tour of Venice.
Fabio will show you unusual and little photographed angles of this fantastic city where every corner holds a secret…. an amazing experience for all-level photographers.
Besides that, a visit to Bressanello’s Art Studio, near the Ponte dei Pugni at San Barnaba, is really a must. You will enjoy a great selection of pictures capturing Venice and its inhabitants, from day-to-day life to extraordinary weather conditions. Some of Fabio’s works have been included in the recently published book Dream of Venice in Black and White.
Interesting combinations can be found in some of the temporary exhibitions with well-known local and international artists, like East Far East in 2018 where the works of two Venetian artists meet the works of two Asian artists.
During my recent visit to The Padiglione del Vetro – “Donne + Uomini in Vetro – WO / MEN in Glass” in Campo Bandiera e Moro, I had the pleasure of meeting Alice Biba, one of the artists exhibiting.
Taking turns the artists are present at the venue and it was amazing to get Alice’s personal insight on her beautiful sculptures and the reasoning behind them.
Curated by Lisette Caputo, the Padiglione del Vetro, or Glass Pavilion, a subject very much linked to Venice, hosts an interesting exhibition of works of art by both young and upcoming as well as already established artists, around the central theme of glass, expressed in a variety of its fascinating facets and characteristics.
The Exhibition is on display until September 23rd 2018 and definitely worth a visit!

Location: Scoletta San Giovanni in Bragora – you will love this little square; off the beaten track but close to St. Mark’s square.
The Casa dei Tre Oci presents the first exhibition dedicated to Fulvio Roiter after his death in 2016, presenting the most complete monographic ever realized on the author. A tribute to the photographer who more than any other has linked the image of Venice to his name.
The exhibition, curated by Denis Curti, shows through 200 photographs the greatness and the internationality of Fulvio Roiter’s work; Images, full of significance, that take you on an amazing journey from Venice and the lagoon to Umbria, Sicily and Sardinia, but also to New Orleans, Belgium, Portugal, Andalusia and Brazil. To return, in the end, home to his beloved Venice.
The exposition is on display until August 26th 2018.
The Casa dei Tre Oci (translated “the house of the 3 eyes”) is a splendid example of early 20th-century neo-Gothic Venetian architecture. Designed by the artist Mario De Maria (Marius Pictor) and built in 1913 on Giudecca island, offering incomparable views of St Mark’s basin, the square and the Doge’s Palace.
The building was declared a monument of historical and artistic interest in 2007 by the Veneto Regional Direction for Cultural and Landscape Assets and, after careful restoration, the Casa dei Tre Oci became a public exhibition venue in 2012. It has since hosted a number of important photography exhibitions with world famous names like Sebastiao Salgado, Helmut Newton, Rene Burri, Ferdinando Scianna, David Lachapelle and Werner Bischoff. Definitely worth a visit to see a different Venice.
The Casa dei Tre Oci is also available for private events.
