Last week a larger-than-life, violin-shaped vessel wound its way down Venice’s famed Grand Canal. The brainchild of Venetian artist Livio De Marchi, who is known for his fantastical giant sculptures, the 39-foot-long boat carried a string quartet that played Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, among other compositions.

Livio De Marchi views the wooden replica vessel as a symbol of the Italian city’s rebirth following Covid-19.
