A floating, fairytale city, Venice's exquisite beauty has enchanted travelers for centuries. A world capital for romance, the Queen of the Adriatic is rewned for its ornate Gothic architecture and charming waterways. Celebrated author Philippe Sollers is the perfect guide to the city's rich cultural heritage: from Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice to the iconic gondolas that populate the Grand Canal, from the magnificent baroque dome of the Salute to the invative international film festival, the Mostra. A source of inspiration for all creative arts, Venice has beguiled painters from Tintoretto to Monet, authors from Ezra Pound to Ernest Hemingway, and musicians from Vivaldi to Stravinsky. Lord Byron wrote Don Juan here and Casava cemented his licentious reputation in the shadow of St. Marks Basilica. All are featured, along with literary quotes paying homage to the Serenissima, quality images, vivid anecdotes, and historical facts. This handsome volume is the ultimate invitation to explore the hidden splendors of this idyllic city.
