Venetian artist Guido Fuga invites visitors to Palazzo Vendramin Grimani to immerse themselves in the fantastic journey of Nicolò Manucci through watercolour drawings that accompany the exhibition NICOLÒ MANUCCI, THE MARCO POLO OF INDIA.
Fuga was born in Venice in 1947. In 1968 he studies architecture and meets Hugo Pratt. A collaboration begins, the so-called special effects: funds, planes, junks, trains, armoured cars that will continue until the last stories. Between 1970 and 1973 he travels twice to India with the legendary Volkswagen, the second trip lasting six months, when Afghanistan was ruled by the king and was the hippies' paradise.
Guido Fuga's works await you at Palazzo Vendramin Grimani until 26 November.
