Eleonora Sovrani’s Journal


Is photography also a means for remembering?
Yes, for remembering, to relive those moments. To see that person who is no longer there. Like the shops that have disappeared, people disappear… and I have them here. This is important.

From Sovrani’s interview with Alvio and Gabriella Gavagnin

This project assembles a portrait of Venice through two sets of archival materials, which are essentially related to each other: John Ruskin Venice notebooks and Alvio Gavagnin’s two decades collection of Venice photographs.

This project was commissioned by the British Council and muf architecture/art on the occasion of the exhibition held in the British Pavilion during the Venice Architecture Biennale 2010.
