Ilaria Pittana & Ilaria Pitteri
Venice in Pattern

ViP is a creative duo born in 2018 on instagram (@veniceinpattern) from an idea by Ilaria Pittana (architect and researcher) and Ilaria Pitteri (graphic and web designer), both from Venice. Initiated as an online narrative project telling the story of the lagoon city through words, photographs and patterns, it gradually acquired an offline dimension through the production of themed products and collaboration with local artisans and institutions. Together they have published two books with Anteferma, Venetian Alphabet and Guide to Venetian Crafts.
