Gorgeous Short Film Captures the Hidden Magic of Venice

Director Olivier Astrologo, along with brother Nils, shares the spirit and essence of Venice in his new short film Venezia. Awarded by the city of Rome last year for his film Roma, which boasts over 1 million views, Astrologo’s newest venture highlights the craftsmanship, architecture, and inhabitants that shape Venice. Sweeping across the lagoon, skipping across sun-drenched rooftops and moving through undiscovered artisan workshops, the short film is a journey beyond the city’s stereotypes.

Produced in partnership with René Caovilla, a master Venetian shoemaker who has worked with the likes of Christian Dior and Chanel, Astrologo’s Venezia peers behind the hidden doors of Venice. Crafting wooden oars, weaving luxurious textiles, and gliding through gondola-laden canals paint an enchanting—and secret—picture of Venice.
