VENICE, Aug 6 (Reuters) – A ship within the form of a large violin, constructed as an homage to individuals who have died from COVID-19, had a check voyage in Venice on Friday as a cellist performed on the deck.
“Violin of Noah” was created through the pandemic by artist Livio De Marchi in collaboration with the Venice Improvement Consortium. The artist, generally known as the Carpenter of Venice, has produced many floating sculptures together with a wood Ferrari.
A cellist in a night robe perched on the violin’s bridge through the check. The boat, reported to be 12 meters or 40 toes in size, will in the end carry an ensemble enjoying music because it sails on the lagoon metropolis’s Grand Canal.
