ROME.- A microcosm condensed in a Venetian shop located in Campo San Barnaba, an area located in the Dorsoduro district, close to the monumental neoclassical facade of the homonymous church, is the protagonist of this painting, multisensorial tranche de vie, from which raise smells, colors, scents of an emporium which is a fragment of the small artisan crafts of the early Venetian Twentieth century. A kaleidoscopic sample of objects and foods, an exceptional proof of virtuosity, where the eye is lost in the myriad of lenticular particular captured by the painter’s brush, the Venetian Mazzetti, specialized in this kind of compositions, as evidenced by the other similar representation, depicting the showcase of an antique shop in the lagoon, coeval to the canvas presented here, on display at the International Exhibition of Monaco in 1901, a painting which gave the Venetian painter the gold medal.
