An Amazingly Beautiful Short Film: “Venezia”

Directed by Oliver Astrologo & Nils Astrologo -

Much has been made about the wonders of Venice, but few ever venture deep enough across its less touristy, yet still historical hidden places. Beyond hundreds of canals and a diverse architectural style, a secret facet of Venetian life lives on, in which the journey of hand crafting gondola wooden oars and loomed fabrics remains rooted in ancient folk traditions.
This short film uncovers the secrets that have been handed down from father to son and projects you to the Venice that existed 500 years ago, immersing you in the extraordinary craftsmen’s veiled workshops that belong to a long lost era.

This project has been produced in partnership with René Caovilla, the master Venetian shoemaker who has overwhelmed the world with his creations.

This video is a homage to the city of Venice on behalf of René Caovilla -
