The “intervallo” in the Rai schedule was an empty space between one transmission and another filled with music and images.

Inter-vàllum, from the Latin inter “between” and vàllus “pole”, from which vàllum palisade, describes the empty space between one and the other pole; (by extension) space between two terms of time or place.

This work alludes both to the physical nature of Venice, whose foundations were built thanks to palisades and then also the gaps between them, and the liquid Venice, where the border between the real city and the perceived city is permeable, as if this aqueous dimension overflows from one side to the other without making either part of the city defined.

Although the city without people might appear dead at first and quick glance, this dimension had something redeeming. The wave motion had disappeared, as there was no longer the activity of man and boats and the lagoon which in the absence of waves had returned to being a mirror. A second reflected image where it was finally possible to perceive all its most sincere and profound essence.

This is the vision of a city, Venice, wich, thanks to lockdown period of March 2020, could reveal and unveal itself in an unprecedented way. Here the real city (of architecture, water, sounds and reflections) and its memory mix and confuse into a single idea of Venice.

(Ugo Carmeni and Chiara Marin)






Zenevia sommersa dalle acque

Live recording, editing e mastering, 2020
Produced by V-A-C Zattere during the workshop programme of DK ‘Zattere’ 2019–2020

Zenevia is a detective story set in an eerie parallel Venice. This interrogation-style audioplay plays with the more traditional narrative by bouncing between two worlds and timelines, with flashbacks and commentary on current Venice issues. The script and sound design were created by five participants of a dedicated workshop led by the writer and professor Alessandro Cinquegrani and composer Daniela Fantechi. Zenevia connects to the overall theme of the DK ‘Zattere’ 2019–20 programme, exploring the sensations, states, new worlds and perspectives brought on by floods.

The project was born from an analysis on cultural boundaries. More and more in our society we are confronted with foreigners and new cultures. Hence new mental logics that often lead to incomprehension, where contact with the different is seen as a fear thus becoming a limit. The word boundary does not necessarily promote a distinctive separation, but also an interface area where meetings, interactions and exchanges take place that often lead to a fusion of cognitive horizons and daily practices. Different traditions, beliefs, cultures and lifestyles meet and inevitably engage in a peaceful or antagonistic dialogue, but which always leads to stimulating mutual knowledge and familiarity, and potentially understanding, respect and solidarity. With our project we have therefore decided to investigate and work on this area, trying to insert a group of users within an experience, where through interaction and performance we try to stimulate a reflection on the theme of the different and a sense of respect and tolerance. The language adopted is that of religion, a language which often, misunderstood, has led to fragmentation of our society. The aim of the project is to demonstrate how the various beliefs and customs, however different in their writings and gestures, all start from a common thought, of norms and teachings that firstly seek to respond to the need to create a civil sense of solidarity, good coexistence and mutual respect within a community. Mutual knowledge will therefore be able to generate new interfaces, spaces and horizons where the largest of the "faiths", respect, will belong to the individual.

The music was made by stretching and manipulating a Gregorian chant ("O Euchari", Hildegard of Bingen) to recall the meditative sounds typical of many religious rituals, while alienating their original meaning thanks to the sound treatment.
