Francesca Bortolotto Possati Guest Edits Whitewaller Venice 2019

By Whitewaller

May 6, 2019

Venice, my home and my family’s home for generations, is rich with countless treasures. I am pleased to lead you in a discovery of my favorite finds as this year’s guest editor of Whitewaller Venice. The charm of this enchanting city is both complex and conflicting. It is almost impossible to remain unmoved on your first or any visit.

While you are in Venice there are so many places to see. You must explore not only our island but the islands gathered around the lagoon, each one distinctive, with an atmosphere you won’t soon forget.

And of course, don’t miss the food of the Venetian islands. The daily fresh vegetables and fishermen’s catch mixed with salty air and tasty herbs make for an amazing dining experience.

It’s May, and the city is already abuzz with the electric excitement that only contemporary art can ignite. Curators and artists
are bustling in and out of the central office of Ca’ Giustinian, just steps from the Bauer. There you’ll find a refined, bohemian spirit and endless interesting characters meeting on the terrace for a bellini or spritz at sunset.

This year’s Biennale, with some of biggest names in contemporary art, already looks promising. The world seems to pour into town for the vernissage week and the Bauer finds itself, as in years past, at the epicenter of the action.

Contemporary art always attracts the most fascinating people, and in Venice a certain glamour always seems to make its way onto the scene. Maybe it derives from the Biennale claiming its place as the oldest art festival in the world, or maybe it is the city that itself is a living work of art, whose beauty is timeless and transcends waves or trends.

The Biennale is like a wind machine: Art here is best as a continuous evolution.
