Venice and Suzhou
Water Cities along the Silk Roads
The exhibition Venezia and Suzhou. Water Cities along the Silk Roads explores the past, present and future of two water cities such as Venice and Suzhou, whose territory is the result of an artificial balance between nature and human ambition. As part of the Silk Roads, the two cities demonstrate the importance of waterways in connecting peoples and cultures. The exhibition takes place in Virtual Tour mode, as a new proposal for the enhancement of temporary exhibitions, an interdisciplinary platform to encourage a global dialogue on the historical, cultural and economic exchanges between water cities along the maritime silk routes in the Afro-Eurasian continent.
