The "Souls of Venice" are composed of 15 statues made of intricate metal weaving, representing the most emblematic figures in the thousand-year history of the Serenissima.

This extraordinary work of art symbolizes the union and symbiosis between the lagoon city and its many artistic expressions, which have made Venice an immortal place in the world cultural landscape.

A prestigious venue

The exhibition will take place in the Androne of Ca' Rezzonico, a prestigious building overlooking the Grand Canal, designed by the famous architect Baldassare Longhena and home to the Museum of 18th-century Venice.

This choice is not accidental: it is the first time Lorenzo Quinn has created a work with a historical background specifically designed for a museum, enriched by the innovative use of augmented reality, which adds a poetic and magical touch to the artistic experience.
