Visualizing Venice, exploring the city’s past
Visualizing Venice, new technologies for urban history is the title of the new exhibition on show at Palazzo Zorzi from 8-26 April 2013. It presents a cross-section of the studies by Visualizing Venice, an international, multidisciplinary research team focused on exploring new ways of “making” history using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and on testing the effectiveness of highly innovative communication systems in narrating urban change over time.
It reconstructs the last 3 years of Visualizing Venice’s research through a series of construction sites (“cantieri”). Moving through these case studies, visitors can trace the history of the islands of San Giovanni e Paolo and the Accademia or the areas of the Giardini della Biennale and the Arsenale. The changes in these parts of Venice’s historical building fabric are staged at an urban and a building scale, making it possible to experience urban transformation in both space and time.
