#43 A prayer after dark

• Some 200 churches are listed to be in Venice, although many of them are not used anymore for religious functions; population had dramatically shrunk over the years and they simply lost their devotees.
Maybe just because of their silent emptiness, they still retain and transmit the sense of intimacy and peacefulness that many people is looking for in nowadays hectic and busy life; like the shadow of this solitary woman caught at the door of the Church of Gesuati, in Sestiere Dorsoduro.
