    POSTVENEZIANITÀ – THE SHAPE OF VENICE TO COME

    GENERALLY, TO TALK ABOUT VENETIANNESS MEANS TO SPEAK OF THE PAST. ITS STYLE, RE-PRESENTED OVER TIME, DEFINED AS “CLASSIC,” “AUTHENTIC,” OR “ICONIC VENETIAN.” SOMETIMES IT IS THEATRICALIZED, SOMETIMES IT IS PLAYED DOWN, BUT THE BOUNDARIES CREATED BY ITS NEED TO BE CONSISTENT AND STABLE ALWAYS LIMIT IT. AS A RESULT, THE SAME STYLE IS PROPOSED AND RE-PROPOSED WITHOUT TOO MANY CREATIVE DEVIATIONS.

    BUT ISN’T VENICE ABOVE ALL AVANT-GARDE?

    THIS AVANT-GARDE NATURE IS TO THE SOUL OF VENICE WHAT THE FEELING OF CHARM AND WONDER IS TO THE RIALTO BRIDGE, TO PIAZZA SAN MARCO, TO ALL OF THE BEAUTY THAT THIS CITY HAS TO OFFER ITS MANY VISITORS.

    THE VENICE VENICE HOTEL IS BORN OF ENCHANTMENT. THE DAWN OF AN ARTISTIC VISION THAT FOCUSES ON THE ANTICIPATORY DIMENSION OF ITS STYLE. TERMED “POSTVENEZIANITÀ” OR “POSTVENETIANNESS,” IT TELLS THE STORY OF THE VENICE OF TOMORROW.

    MANIFESTO DELLA POSTVENEZIANITÀ

    IT IS FROM HERE, IN VENICE

    BENEATH THE MOONLIGHT THAT SURVIVED THE ONSET OF FUTURISM, FROM PALAZZO CA’ DA MOSTO, THE ANCIENT HOME OF SOVEREIGNS, CZARS, AND EXPLORERS, DISCOVERERS OF FARAWAY LANDS, ON THIS BANK OF THE GRAND CANAL OVERLOOKING THE MERCATO VECCHIO AND THE RIALTO BRIDGE, THAT WE LAUNCH THIS MANIFESTO AND

    WE GIVE BIRTH TO THE POSTVENETIAN MOVEMENT.

    WE OFFER NEW CREATIVE IMPETUS TO VENETIAN INGENUITY GROUNDED IN CLASSICISM.

    WE ADOPT THE SYMBOL OF THE ROSE: A TRIBUTE TO BEAUTY, A TOKEN OF LEGENDARY PROMISES OF LOVE NOT TO BE BROKEN.

    WE PURSUE BALANCE IN THE GREATER SUM OF CONTRASTING PARTS. WE VIEW CULTURAL FUSION AS A PATH TO THE TRUTH.

    WE ELECT THE FREEDOM OF INCOHERENCE AS A METHOD, AESTHETICS AS THE INSUPERABLE BOUNDARY OF FUNCTIONALITY,

    WE EMBRACE LATERAL THINKING, WE APPLAUD COURAGEOUS ARTISTIC VISION, WE ARE ARTISANS OF DREAMS.

    WE ACCEPT THE ETERNAL CALL FOR CHANGE AS THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE OF VENETIANNESS AND RESPONDING TO IT AS NECESSARY IN THE NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS.

    WITH THIS, WE GIVE LIFE TO POSTVENEZIANITÀ, TO ENCHANT THE WORLD AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN…

    TEAM NWC, PALAZZO CA’ DA MOSTO, 2021.




    THE REBIRTH OF CA’ DA MOSTO

    LOOKING OUT OVER THE GRAND CANAL TOWARDS THE ICONIC RIALTO BRIDGE AND THE ANCIENT MARKETS WITH ITS FISHMONGERS AND GREENGROCERS, THE EARLY DAYS OF VENICE ARE WITHIN EASY GRASP OF THE MIND’S EYE. WE ARE IN CA’ DA MOSTO: ONE OF THE CITY’S OLDEST PALACES. A BYZANTINE DREAM.

    FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS, THIS AREA WAS THE HUB OF THE REPUBLIC’S COMMERCIAL ACTIVITIES: THE PERFECT PLACE TO TRADE GOODS AND EXCHANGE KNOWLEDGE OF THE DISTANT WORLDS GRADUALLY BEING DISCOVERED.

    CA’ DA MOSTO’S HISTORY SPEAKS OF ADVENTURERS, CELEBRATED NAVIGATORS, ILLUSTRIOUS FIGURES, NOBILITY, AND ABOVE ALL, HOSPITALITY. FROM THE SEVENTEENTH TO THE NINETEENTH CENTURY, THE PALACE WAS HOME TO THE MOST RENOWNED HOTEL OF THE TIME, THE LEON BIANCO, A FAVORITE DESTINATION OF RULERS, CZARS, ARTISTS, POETS, WRITERS, AND ARISTOCRATS TAKING PART IN THE GRAND TOUR.

    DESPITE ITS GLORIOUS PAST, CA’ DA MOSTO WAS LATER ABANDONED. THE PALACE SADLY SURRENDERED TO A FUTURE OF DECAY AND REMAINED UNINHABITED FOR DECADES, DEPRIVING VENICE OF ONE OF ITS MOST SIGNIFICANT AND VITAL SYMBOLS OF ECONOMIC DOMINANCE.

    TODAY, AFTER A CHALLENGING RESTORATION, THERE IS FINALLY THE CERTAINTY OF A DIFFERENT DESTINY FOR THIS ROMANTIC AND EVOCATIVE RESIDENCE – A SECRET REFUGE FOR THE ETERNAL AVANT-GARDE SPIRIT THAT ANIMATES VENICE.

    AN ENCHANTING VISION – A POSTVENETIAN DREAM – RESTORES CA’ DA MOSTO, TOGETHER WITH ITS EXTRAORDINARY VIGOR AND INNATE CALLING FOR HOSPITALITY.

    THE VENICE VENICE HOTEL, 2022.
