Vesper is a six-monthly, multidisciplinary and bilingual (Italian and English) journal which deals with the relationships between forms and processes of thought and of design. Gazing into the dusk, when light slowly merges with darkness and the illuminating object is no longer visible, Vesper aims to interpret the act of designing through tracing and revealing the movement of transformation.

This first issue of Vesper is dedicated to the realities and unreleased imaginaries of the famous lagoon city. Venice is read as a paradigm of contemporaneity, the place where the architecture, arts, and theories have superlative dimensions: very slow, extremely long-lasting, super short, or overexposed.

The journal collects projects, essays, and other views from various directions and perspectives, whether a reflection on the city, its architecture, music and theatre, or on Venice as a literary body in itself.
