When the Doges (Used to Wed the Sea with Rings)



When the Doges (Used to Wed the Sea with Rings)

A photographic homage to Venice, this exhibit is inspired by the sense of urgency to support artistic heritage conservation in Venice following the recent flood damage.

The #AmericaLovesVenice initiative was launched by the Embassy of Italy in Washington, in partnership with the nonprofit organization Save Venice, and with the collaboration of the Italian Consulate Generals and Italian Cultural Institutes throughout the United States, to provide a pathway to help the recovery efforts by supporting Save Venice’s Immediate Response Fund at


Special thanks to: Save Venice Inc. , Archivio Gianni Berengo Gardin, Fondazione Fulvio Roiter.

The exhibition is on view until February, 15 2020 - Monday through Friday 10am to 4pm


Gianni Berengo Gardin, one of the most important Italian photographers, has dedicated himself mostly to reportage and editorial work, but his career, that spans more than 50 years, has encompassed book illustration and advertising.

Claudia Corrent  is a freelance photographer based in Bolzano, Italy. 
After completing a degree in Philosophy at the University of Trento, she approached photography focusing on anthropological and social issues and the relationship between people and the environment.

Renato D'Agostin is an Italian photographer, best-known for his black and white silver gelatin prints and his books. One of his best is a volume dedicated to Venice and called The Beautiful Cliche'. D'Agostin used to live and work in New York City and is now based near Venice, Italy.

Fulvio Roiter, born in the Venetian countryside, has been one of the most significant Italian photographers of our times. After publishing his first photobook “Venice à fleur d'eau,” in 1954, at a still very young age he was awarded the Nadar Prize in 1965 for “Ombrie Terre di San François.” One of his many other great accomplishments was his first horizontal color photobook, “Essere Venezia,” which sold more than a million copies.

Save Venice Inc. Save Venice is the leading American non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the artistic heritage of Venice, Italy for the world. Founded in response to the floods of 1966, the worst in recorded history, and incorporated in 1971, Save Venice has since worked tirelessly to preserve, protect, and promote the art and culture of Venice and has funded the conservation of more than 550 projects comprising over 1,000 individual artworks. In 2015, Save Venice established the Rosand Library & Study Center in Venice, creating a nexus for the research of Venetian art, history, and conservation. Save Venice also provides grants for fellowships, exhibitions, and publications to advance Venetian scholarship and conservation.
