Transmitting the essence of Venice through the digital square meter of Chic Words is a task that gives me a feeling of pleasure and serenity.

Looking at the collection of shots of non-conventional Venetian sunsets that I began to show you a few days ago: >>> Unconventional Venetian sunsets, I tried to understand what was the common feeling of beauty that those visions had aroused in my mind, pushing me to take those photographs.

And looking for the definition of diaphanous I discovered how in many ways this concept also represents myself, as you can read here: >>> definition of diaphanous from Italian dictionary.
