Inside the Basilica of San Marco

An incredible experience! Inside the Basilica of San Marco it's absolutely forbidden to take pictures, so what an honor to be called as the official photographer for a very important ceremony!

My mentor David Alan Harvey, great photographer of Magnum, and my teacher of photography more than 10 years ago, used to tell me: "Remember that what happens immediately before or immediately after an event, is very often more important than the event itself". This is such the case, I got this picture at the end of the ceremony, when everybody was going away. I used my Leica SL, 90mm Elmarit M f/2,8, 1/25s f2,8, iso 3200.
