Saint Mark’s Square Through The Sky Over Nine Columns
Playing again with the installation by Heinz Mack, “The Sky Over Nine Columns”, that amazingly enriches the skyline of Venice and interacts with the city in a lot of different ways. This summer I have been trying to take advantage of this piece of art to photograph some of the most iconic building of Venice (St. Mark’s Bell Tower and Doge’s Palace) on a different perspective or through an unusual artistic frame.
Location: San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice.
What to shot: San Giorgio Maggiore has a small harbor, a renaissance church, a Benedictine monastery, but it also offers a good view of St. Mark’s Square and the lagoon across.
Ideal time to shot: I prefer to be at San Giorgio at sunset, when the light illuminates the Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Campanile sideways.
Gear: From wide angles to teles.
How to get there: Public transport water bus stations S. Giorgio (line 2).
