Carnet de voyage, the illustrated perfume An interactive setting for drawings and perfumed stories
A traveller who contemplates the infinite horizon, the invisible that escapes the gaze: here is our "merchant of Venice", an indomitable traveller ready to challenge the dangers and fate to get to the most precious and rare raw materials.
Carnet de voyage is an illustrated olfactory journey that allows visitors to discover the origin of perfume in a suspended dimension between fantasy and reality. Drawings by Guido Fuga, a great friend and collaborator of Hugo Pratt, perfumed tales by Joan Giacomin and an interactive and multisensory setting between spices and mysterious raw materials.
They allow you to travel with your nose in the air, immersed in an indefinite time where each stage is an olfactory dream of discoveries, love, deceptions, challenges, legends, superstitions in which the absolute protagonist is an invisible one, for which over the centuries Venetian merchants have sailed the seas to the most distant destinations: Perfume.
The Venetian perfumery tradition contained in The Merchant of Venice fragrances, combined with the fairy-tale character of the main character's imaginary journey, offers a contemporary interpretation of a thousand-year-old Venetian history of which enchantment and magic can still make us dream.
