Gianni Berengo Gardin, VENEZIA

I’m curious what year this is.

I found a copy of it in a web store that lists it as “Canal Grande Venezia 1955 by Berengo Gardin”, which would make it one of Gardin’s earliest published photos.

It was included in a 2013 Gardin exhibition, which describes it as showing “high water during the Historical Regatta” (con l’acqua alta, durante la Regata Storica). That led me to the official site for the Regata Storica di Venezia , which has a “virtual museum” with 690 historic photos of the regatta dating back to 1881, including this one:

I love the web.
