Ciao! I am Sofia Pilotto, a student of Business Administration at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. Living in the province of Vicenza, I have always experienced Venice as a commuter. For this reason, every time I have the chance to spend a few days in this wonderful city, outside the university, I like to explore Venice in every corner and get lost in the various streets trying to capture details and sensations with my compact camera.
I have only approached photography in recent years, there is still a lot I would like to learn; before this, I concentrated mainly on shooting underwater videos, since I am also a diving instructor.
I shot “Venezia è viva (Venice is alive” from the panoramic terrace of the Fondaco dei Tedeschi on my birthday in February. Together with a friend of mine we admired the splendid panorama, but the wind was so cold that we just had time to take a couple of photos; my hands were frozen but now I can say it was worth it!
Venice means art in every square centimeter, it is a colorful, mysterious city, perhaps a little melancholic at times, but it is not just an “open-air museum”. Venice is alive because real people live there. And when everyday life is intertwined with its majesty, we can admire its true beauty! It would be a dream to be able to live there every day.
Hi, this is Maria Rossi:
as a digital native, I started photographing as a child and, since then, I have never stopped. The camera allows me to better observe the space that surrounds me, and, in particular, the cities I visit; it lets me grasp aspects that with a quick glance, perhaps, I would not be able to grasp.
Like this contrast of lights that, only after taking the photo, I was able to observe more deeply. It allowed me to look at Venice in a different light. I took it during the trip I made in the lagoon in January of last year; just before the lock-down due to the pandemic (a lucky moment, though in unfortunate circumstances!).
I got to know the city in its winter guise and it fascinated me to the point of arousing the curiosity to discover its appearance in the other seasons of the year.
This was my first visit, and it certainly won’t be the last one!
Hi everyone, I’m Anna Virili and I’m from Udine.
Living a few hours from Venice, I have visited it numerous times since childhood.
I then attended Ca ‘Foscari University, an experience that made me fall in love forever with Venice and its magic.
Now that my eldest daughter is attending the same university, I don’t miss any opportunity to go back to get lost in the calli and take some photos.
Ciao, I am Susanna Pergher, I am seventeen and I am a student at the scientific high school in Trento. I am a very positive girl, I always throw myself into new adventures without fear, as I consider them as very important opportunities to broaden my knowledge and to mature.
I believe that my generation has lots of potentialities, which is why I gladly participate in the active life of my city also by designing and helping in the implementation of projects aimed at young people in which you feel free to discuss.
Since I was very little, one of my greatest passions is photography, because, in addition to the function of remembrance of past events, which is very important to me, I believe that through a photo you can express many more emotions than by a written text.
I have been to Venice twice: once when I was very young, and the other one in September 2020, and I immediately fell in love with it. I immersed myself in her beauties and felt overwhelmed by a sense of freedom and a dream. As soon as possible I will definitely return to this fantastic city, which never ceases to amaze you.
Ciao Venezia! This is Pam Wheeler, from the United States.
Venice lives in my heart always. The first time I experienced the colors and feelings and sounds of Venice on my skin, I felt at home.
I love to wander and linger and stroll with my camera in Venice, because her beauty is as grand as its Canal and as intricate as a master’s painting.
I am a marketing director who has held leadership positions with both Fortune 500 and start-up companies in the United States. My passion for photography was born by spending a lot of time in nature and taking long walks with my camera.
And that’s exactly why I love Venice. She invites long walks and getting lost, to explore colors and shapes textures.
