Viva San Marco! (The motto of the Serenissima)
Venice, the Queen of the Adriatic. The City of Water, Masks, Bridges, Canals. Venice, one of the four Repubbliche Marinare. Venice who can no longer walk, Venice who knows that the sea is life, but also death. Venice who slips into the waves, every year more. “Venice, half woman, half fish, is a mermaid who slowly undoes into a swamp in the Adriatic”, said Jean Cocteau. Venice who still wears a mask and dances every Carnevale, among her buildings who speak of stories that sail on the sea, from all the corners of the world. Venice, the City for the runaways. Venice who remains, after all, Serenissima.
