Portali e Lunette -- a multimedia catalog for the preservation of Venice's artistic entrances. Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Among the numerous churches, palaces, and shops in Venice, there is an abundance of public art that captivates the casual observers' attention. Public art takes many forms, such as decorative doorways to buildings and courtyards, known as portali. Occasionally found within the arches of portali are pieces called lunette, which were the main focus of our project. These structures are quickly deteriorating due to lack of care and background information needed for restoration. In this project, we expanded upon the little existing knowledge of this public artwork, and we facilitated the preservation of lunette and portali by creating several prototypes of materials and programs to increase awareness around the city as well as worldwide.
