Veneziani is the new photographic book by Giorgio Granatiero, a pupil of Giovanni Chiaramonte and previously author of City Light. Exploring the European City (Franco Cosimo Panini, 2017). After having «explored the Europe of metropolises, obtaining a clear, serene, non-stereotyped reading of it», as Michele Smargiassi of Repubblica wrote talking about City Light , Granatiero decided to return to his hometown to look at it from the point of view of its inhabitants. Although he only spent the first few years of his life in Venice, he tried to reconstruct his distant childhood memory of a city to live in as well as to visit.

The volume collects forty-two analog color images taken over three years (2016-2019) and divided into three chapters that reveal still authentic urban views and show the stories of the last inhabitants; because the Venetians are resisting and with this book we want to talk about them, hopefully not for the last time.
