Venetian film director Giovanni Pellegrini seized the opportunity to make a documentary about La Fenice's commissioning of an opera by Filippo Perocco to commemorate fifty years after the flood, in which he explores the relations Venetians have with the water surrounding them. The new opera proves once again La Fenice's role as a cutting-edge institution premiering work by contemporary composers from Stravinsky to Kagel and Britten to Maderna and Nonno.
