Caffè Florian – the legendary Venetian café where, in the late 19th century, the city’s mayor Riccardo Selvatico launched the first Biennale – will open its doors to Spose del mare, a photography installation created by Roberto Kusterle. For the past thirty years, in conjunction with the Visual Arts and Architecture international exhibitions, one artist has been invited to reinterpret the space of the historic café with an installation. Roberto Kusterle uses photography as a vessel to transport us, following his “shell women”, along a surreal journey into the myth of Venice, born from water, wedded to the Adriatic sea.
