The terrace of the T Fondaco dei Tedeschi, a breath-taking stage jutting out over the water of the Grand Canal, will be the place where the project comes to life, combining the choreographed movements of four dancers, the ancient gestures of a shoe craftswoman and the powerful voice of soprano Lieta Naccari. Through the action of walking and the shoe as a means of expression, the designer investigates nowadays female condition in relation to the stories and paths of the women of the past, who preceded her.
