Registration is required at the following link.

After three years and almost thirty "itinerant conversations" of the cycle "Venice as a Model for the Future?" (curated by Barbara Casavecchia and Pietro Consolandi) you are all invited on Saturday, 6 May 2023, at 4 pm, at Ocean Space to take part in an afternoon of public conversations and discussion.

We will start with the question, borrowed from Le Corbusier, chosen as the title of this multi-year program: Can Venice be a model for the future?

We try to answer it through conversations that will develop around thematic research panels (Earth/Water; Water/Water; Air/Water) with the aim of discussing together the environmental and cultural challenges that the lagoon and the city have faced and will continue to face.

To dialogue with each other, many of the protagonists of the walks held between 2020 and 2022; the public can take part in the sessions, scheduled from 4pm to 6pm. The exchanges culminate in a final plenary moment to share thoughts and possible answers.

This will be followed (6:30pm) by "Sapid Soil", the cycle of Convivial Tables curated by The Tidal Garden. “Sapid Soil - Prelude" will open the series of culinary events with a buffet exploring the edibility of the shores of Venice developed with Marco Bravetti of Tocia! cucina e comunità.

At sunset, around 8pm, the first walk inaugurating the fourth cycle will start. Animated by an initial screening of Metagoon, it is led by Matteo Stocco and Alice Ongaro Sartori, who take us through a collective interview with marine biologist and fisherman Andrea Chinellato.
