Exhibition: the photo album of the twentieth century in Venice


Highlights: The image was taken from a photograph taken in the early 1900s. It was taken at the time of the First World War. The photo was taken on a ship that was sailing off the coast of Italy. The image is of a ship with the name of the ship in the title: "The Ship of the Day" It is a picture of a man on a boat in the middle of the ocean. The picture was taken by a camera attached to the ship's mast, which was on board the ship.

REPORT - The treasures of the Condé Nast archives are scattered on the walls of Palazzo Grassi and show how artists have evolved the image over the decades.
