Sulla storia della fotografia attorno al 1868
Photography in Venice around 1868 was going through a period of great vitality. Mapping the main photographic studios, located mainly around St. Mark Square, includes indeed about a hundred operators who create images in various formats, from the large ‘imperial’ to the small ‘visiting cards’ with all the suggestions allowed by the existing techniques, from monochrome imbibitions to printing on pre-colored paper to the romantic ‘moonlight’ effect. From Antonio Perini to Carlo Ponti to Carlo Naya, these professionals trace a new path to the creation of images, inventing new tools and leaving evidence of fascinating views of the city of Venice, such as the one that portrays the R. Scuola Superiore di Commercio.
