Violin boat the canals of Venice

The project is being supported by the Venice Development Consortium, who clearly want to celebrate their city’s historic connection to music, and create a highly instgrammable moment while doing so. The violin boat was formally launched in September and has been spotted sailing around Venice. In his artistic career, De Marchi worked first in marble, then bronze, and most recently in wood. He has completed a number of what he calls Giant Works, each with a touch of the ironic and bizarre. Floating in water is a definite theme (he’s in Venice, after all) in his floating cars, ‘paper’ cranes, and a giant boat in the form of shoe.
