CAMPI: THE OUTDOOR LIVING ROOMS OF VENICE
workshop 04 June - 02 July
When you walk through the narrow streets of Venice, you will regularly be surprised by beautiful open public spaces, called „campi” by the Venetians. A campo (‚field”) is not the same as a piazza (‚square”), but also here you will find playing children, gossiping ladies and drinking students; the campi are in fact the living rooms of the city.
Follow this workshop because:
After the workshop your work will be part of a small exhibition about the Venetian Campi in Deventer.
