"There will no longer be the 'typical' Venetian who may never have existed [...] there will be a new inhabitant of Venice who can breathe life back into the city."

Vincenzo'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 to a Venetian mother and a Friulian father, Vincenzo moved to Venice when he was twenty. A now retired philosophy professor, he passes on his passion for music through the Ca' Foscari University choir and by playing the organ for the San Cassiano Parish.

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.
