A comprehensive work on Venice, which highlight the inseparable relatioship between the historical, political, social and artistic events that have caracterized its millenary history. A journey to discover the lagoon city which begins with its most celebrated features, and along the way reveals its least known places, from the numerous private gardens, to the isolated squares, the islands and the hard-to-reach corners.
With a clear writing style, the support of an ample gallery of images, and a multidisciplinary approach, this book guides the reader through the “magnificent complexity” that has always characterized Venice.
