«A total absence of motor traffic for months and months, just pedestrians and slow moving boats travelling almos at walking pace: it takes but a fortnight at this considerate pace to effect a change in your perception of life. It is not just all the beauty that surrounds you; wherever you look, you see paintings, wonderful architecture, fine proportions, beautiful datails – and the peace and tranquillity to take all of it in. In any other town or city so much contemplation would be perilous.» (Erica Pedretti)

A diary written out on photographs and, depending on the viewing angle, either the picture ort he text appears, becoming visible and readable.
