La Serenissima, the supremely serene city, is world-famous and still invisible. The only one who can explain this contradiction is a person who knows the city inside and out. Venice native Federico Povoleri shows us his home from his unique perspective and helps us see the magic beneath the endlessly photographed surface, a magic that reveals itself only to those who respect and understand the former sea-based republic. Povoleri sees his hometown in a way no else does; with his scenic photography and vivid storytelling, he has captured the feel of the unique lagoon city.
