1 video, 24 text booklets (opened each 26,5 x 16 cm)

Through the social network 40xVenezia, I came into contact with 24 people in Venice who told me a "secret". Afterwards three opera singers interpreted the stories musically for my video recordings. The events told by men were performed by a singer, the reports of women by a female singer: Ioana Olivia Badiu (soprano), Marco Catto (tenor) and Franco Zanette (tenor).
