Veneto Hidden Corners: the stilt houses of the Sacca di Scardovari
For the weekly column “Veneto Hidden Corners”, the photographer Giovanni Vecchiato gives us exclusively for VS a shot dedicated to the top hidden beauties of Veneto.
The Sacca degli Scardovari is a vast stretch of water located between the mouths of the Po di Gnocca and the Po delle Tolle. Characterized by dozens of stilt houses, they are dedicated to the cultivation of clams, mussels as well as the delicious pink oyster called “Perla del Delta” (pearl of the Delta). A secret corner of Veneto whose aerial view is extremely suggestive.
A deep passion for reportage, Giovanni Vecchiato has worked as a portrait photographer in the entertainment industry in London where he recently set up the “View my eye” exhibition, documenting the most suggestive places in Italy through the art of aerial photography, work also published by the National Geographic.
