M9 - Museum of the 20th Century, Mestre
Screening of the documentary "Lagunaria" by Giovanni Pellegrini and conversation with the director.
A voice from a distant future tells the story of a city that once was one of the most famous in the world, a city born from the water. Amid legends, myths, and rumors, the narrator describes a daily life made of boats, sometimes mythical, sometimes dramatic and poetic, bringing out its relationship with the surrounding lagoon, its waters, its muddy islands, and the animals that inhabit it. Did that city ever exist? Is it still inhabited, or has it turned into a tourist park? Did it withstand the flood or was it submerged by the waters? An undefined tale emerges as a discovery of a unique and fragile city that, in its own way, speaks of every city on Earth.
The event is organized by DVRI with M9 - Museum of the 20th Century in collaboration with CinemAmbiente and Ginko Film.
