"I hope we will push more toward the consideration of rowing as a tool for the city's regeneration."

Saverio's gaze was captured by Greek-French photographer Nikos Aliagas during an art residence in Venice in 2022.

Nikos' lens traveled through the extraordinary everyday life of Venice, letting photography tell the stories of those who live and make these places come alive.

Born and raised in Venice, Saverio decided to be apprenticed to the last of the remèri (oarsmen). Today you can find him in his workshop Le Forcole in Dorsoduro on the Fondamenta Soranzo where he perpetuates these ancestral gestures.

The photography exhibition Nikos Aliagas. Regards Vénitiens is open to the public in the ground floor spaces of Palazzo Vendramin Grimani, home of Fondazione dell'Albero d'Oro, until November 26, 2023.
