I’ve had the great honour of being invited to the official celebration of Liberation Day in Venice by ANPI, the national association of Italian resistance fighters, to photograph their participation in the event.
The photos below are taken in fifteen minutes, walking about 200m.
I’ve been bicycling all my life, and its one of the very few things I miss here in Venice. Berlin, on the other hand, is full of bicycles.
