Grand Tour is a collection of travel books and artist books: the artist express herself using her natural language, impressing on paper the feelings of different cities (here, thoise of her origin: Venice and its lagoon).
Micromosaic was used in Grand Tour times as first souvenirs, during XVII – XIX centuries. I wanted to use the same meanings in a personal and contemporary edition.

"Grand Tour, Venezia e la laguna di Venezia", libri d'artista in mosaico di Laura Carraro

Venice is colour, rhythm, surface. Its natural environment was made of the only elements of water and air, absolute surfaces of  colour: not geometrically ordered, not prospectically explicable. From the words of Sergio Bettini, “Venezia”, 1953.
