Chronicles from a submerged city was born in favor of the Fallani Venice screen printing to support the restarting of activities following the high water that hit the lagoon city on 12 November 2019 reaching 187 cm.
After this exceptional event, the desire is to look ahead and start again, resuming daily activities, this spirit gave life to this project thanks to a series of friends close to the screen printing workshops who involved a series of illustrators, new and old acquaintances by Fallani, asking them to create a graphic linked to the city of Venice.
Bruno Bozzetto, Ale Giorgini, Riccardo Guasco, Franco Matticchio, Andy Rementer, Jacopo Rosati, Guido Scarabottolo, Lucio Schiavon and Olimpia Zagnoli have decided to donate their own work to screen printing so as to allow Gianpaolo, deus ex-machina of this reality, to resume printing with new editions and replace damaged materials.
The illustrations are available in pre-order on https://fallanivenezia.bigcartel.com/, in a limited edition of 50 numbered and signed by the artists, which can be purchased individually or in the folder.
