Eléonore Mongiat
Institution: Eléonore Mongiat

Serge Bassenko (1927-2013) was a French artist, thinker and writer always in search of the soul of the human world. His photo collection is now stored in AWA: 7,000 photographs of Venice and its Lagoon, that show the hidden heart of Venice; of the countryside of France, that show how nature has been shaped by man; and further of Friuli in Italy. Also, Bassenko’s twenty-five written works consisting of: nineteen novels, a collection of thoughts, “The Sage”, a tragedy “Antigone”, short novels, satirical dialogues, poems and travel stories are preserved for the future, thanks to Eléonore Mongiat, Bassenko’s lifetime companion.
