An abstract, black & white silent film, Ramusiana is an attempt at describing and finding again some parts of the world - explored, visited, documented, imagined. The project's title refers to geographer and civil servant of the Republic of Venice Giovanni Battista Ramusio (1485-1557). Between 1550 and 1559, together with editor Tommaso Giunti and his own son Paolo, Ramusio published a large collection of travel accounts, the Navigationi et viaggi which translates into “voyages and travels”. The subtitle of the film - Universale della parte del mondo nuovamente ritrovata (Universal map of the newly found part of the world) - is taken from a map featured in the third volume of the Navigationi et viaggi, published in Venice in 1556.
