The Miracle of Cana. The originality of re-production
While at the Factum Arte Lab in Madrid, Adam Lowe, a British artist specializing in facsimile production, recreated Paolo Veronese’s famous painting on a 1:1 scale. The original, currently held at the Louvre, was made for the refectory of the Benedictine monastery of S. Giorgio Maggiore. With this copy, Veronese’s ‘Wedding Feast at Cana’ was brought back to the city of Venice and the island of S. Giorgio. Its placement therefore constitutes a symbolic completion of the island’s cultural rebirth, initiated more than half a century ago.
