L’acqua è da sempre indicata per rappresentare la vita e il movimento. Questo concetto accomuna culture anche piuttosto distanti, come quella italiana e quella russa.

Nei mesi di ottobre e novembre, a San Pietroburgo, si terrà una mostra fotografica dedicata proprio all’acqua. La cosa interessante è che le foto scattate dall’artista sono unite da un soggetto comune, fontane e cascate di antichi palazzi, ma provengono da ambienti e luoghi molto distanti.

Alcune foto infatti ritraggono i più celebri monumenti di Roma che hanno a che fare con l’acqua, come Villa d’Este e piazza Navona. Questa mostra, quindi, racchiude nello stesso elemento tante città diverse ma le rende simili, azzerando le distanze che le separano.

Water connects nations

We all see water as a source of life that is constantly moving. This way of thinking is common to mostly all the cultures and countries, even distant ones, such as Italy and Russia.

From October to November in Russia will take place an interesting exhibition focused on the importance of water. It contains a lot of pictures of fountains and waterfalls near ancient monuments and palaces. These pictures come from different countries and cities.

For example, some pictures depict some of the most famous monuments in Rome that are related to water, such as Villa d’Este and Piazza Navona. The beauty of this exhibition is the ability to portrait distant realities through a common element, water, which is always the same all over the world.
