Teatro La Fenice, the back entrance, Venezia, May 2006

Venezia, May 2006

Before going to Venice, read Joseph Brodsky’s “Fondamenta degli Incurabili”. It will sharp your senses to the essentials. Otherwise you will see the town just as a large tourist trap. And Venice is not guilty for this. See it with poet’s eyes, a poet hit hard by his fate. Otherwise you’ll miss it. And don’t ask me what “it” is. May 2006.
