“The Caffè Florian in Venice” Comic book
The compelling story of Caffè Florian told in a comic strip, to spread it among young enthusiasts and curious children. We like to imagine that it will be read together by grandparents and grandchildren, by parents and children. Three hundred years later, its magic still works: the Florian has the power to bring people together.
We still pronounce the name of a person who lived in Venice more than three centuries ago to name the place in San Marco Square: we say “Floriano”, Florian in venetian dialect.
He himself, Floriano, who is both the protagonist and the voiceover narrator, accompanies us in this fascinating narrative.
From Floriano Francesconi who founded it in 1720, to his heirs, the comics tells us the vicissitudes of a coffee shop that has welcomed three centuries of human testimonies within its walls.
Through the folding of history he tells us about the spirit and the passion that made such lasting success possible.
The libertine spirit of the Age of Enlightenment, the upheavals of the nineteenth century, the epochal novelties of the twentieth century and the adaptations to the twenty-first century. A vertigo of time through science, literature, revolutions, gossip and politics; through that art of living the polis that created the sense of identity that made Venice a Serenissima city.
Floriano and his heirs have made the Florian an agorà, a point of reference with a precise social role: a place of welcome and integration, of transgression and revolution, of sensuality and art.
To learn about this exciting story and understand the reason of such a success, we relied on the narration of comics. We can read and observe the aesthetic details of each era, dream and be carried away by the imagination in every scene thanks to the artistic synergy between the script and drawings by Valerio Held and the texts by Giorgio Figus.
