Tonight, at the Lido of Venice, in the heart of the Venice International Film Festival, next to the Palabiennale, a new work by the street artist Laika appeared who returns to pay homage, after almost two years, to the photographer Pietro Coccia, who died in 2019. “Festivals were home to Pietro and cinema his life. I feel immense joy knowing that Pietro will be the protagonist of a documentary: it is the best gift that cinema could give to Pietro and all his friends. I like to imagine him parading on that red carpet, which many times hosted him in the ranks of photographers, with his walk a bit clumsy, but welcomed like a star. A humble and generous star, ”said the artist. In 2019 Laika had created another work dedicated to Pietro Coccia near the Rome Film Fest. Two years later, he returns to pay homage to the photographer in Venice, on the occasion of the presentation of the documentary ‘Pietro il grande’ by Antonello Sarno.
