We recently got back after a vacation in Venice.
Everything one can say about Venice – past, present, future – appears to have been said by Italo Calvino in Invisible Cities – his masterpiece that defies classification (and even, perhaps, description). After reading those pages, anything I can put down seems hopelessly commonplace; I wonder if it is worth attempting a sketch of either the city or the book.
When words fail, pictures come to the rescue. We captured images of Venice in plenty; the albums listed below offer a thematic view to this city of all cities.
