These days there is the Art Biennale 2013 in Venice. The works and installations by artists from all over the world find space in various places of the city of Venice. In particular in the national pavilions in the “Giardini di Castello”. Places that open the eyes of the visitor to fill it of ideas, feelings, and new visions. Before that though, the same places were and are (sequentially, year after year) empty containers. Spaces that I wanted to photograph because even the bare walls, soft lighting in a vacuum and the air passing through it make palpable the moment of art, though still as an absence. So waiting spaces, loads of memory of what has filled them earlier, but above all ready to welcome visitors and works of new art exhibitions.
