Tra i numeri di Venezia

Direction
Prof. Gianluigi Pescolderung


Together with
Elisa Finesso

Venice is a city full of small hidden details that inevitably get ignored by the current stereotype-based tourism model. This project got started from these considerations, however, it ended up becoming a personal typographic research, ready to be shared with anyone who is passionate about the topic. The object of study is unusual: the city numbers. A long calle-by-calle search managed to categorize them within six historical families: a useful method to track the history of the city in a completely new way.
