The Other Venice

If   you  really  have romance  and  rock-and-roll  in  your  heart,  you  will love  Serenissima  for  ever!

Timeless and magical, creative and baroque, the city refuses to rest on its past glory. Space is simply duplicated and arranged in mirrored reflections, like a chessboard- the canals, piles, small streets, quays, boats, squares, bridges, wells, and even the paving stones- orchestrate this reciprocal geometry. As for time, at any one moment will be multilayered, stratified, shimmering, and open. Venice is a wave of intertwined paths that lead nowhere and suffice unto themselves, a clock where every hour is the same. The mask fits the face perfectly, with or without the carnival.
