Outside the Giardini - Fabrizio Plessi's - Mare Verticale - a 44 meter high video installation - a totem pole of steel and aluminum that illuminates Venice with technology - greets the visitor on the Laguna basin in front of the Giardini. Shockingly, with Plessi, there are only five artists representing Italy in the two main exhibition areas of the 51st Biennale di Venezia - in the Italian Pavilion, the exhibition - The Experience of Art - curated by Maria de Corral shows works by 42 well-known and up and coming International artists - only one is Italian!
