“Everyone, at least once, has wandered along a street already seen before, through a neighborhood already familiar, yet observing and discovering details as if it were the first time, noticing entrances, shops, windows, signs, cornices, gutters, enjoying each and every piece, enthralled by the pure pleasure of the gaze. Well, I think this is the most correct approach to understand the painting of Carpaccio” (M. Cancogni).
