Being born near the Venetian lagoon must have had some influence on Andrea Zelio in his way of seeing life. And just like Venice is considered "elegant and sad", so Andrea Zelio calls his style "Saudade chic", a neologism to describe his veiled refined fantastic world - mixed with a love remaining from a lost past?
Andrea felt the need to create at a very young 12 years when he began to write "the memories of my youth", reflections on life, and simultaneously to draw graffiti on the exterior walls of the family home (which periodically were erased with thick coats of lime).

Italy, San Donà di PiaveFIND IT HERE
Located at the confluence of several rivers feeding the lagoon of Venice, the story of San Dona di Piave was characterized by instability both hydraulic and politics.
For this, every 7 August, the mayor of San Dona gives 2 capons to the mayor of Musile di Piave in a tradition that has been handed down since 1250, the year of the total destruction of the surrounding countryside from flooding of the river Piave.
San Dona then had moments of great splendor during the Kingdom of Italy but substantial problems of survival during the First World War, particularly during major battles on the Piave.
With its strategic location it has a busy cultural life and hosts a special park dedicated to "Sculpture in Architecture".
