Venice is a chameleon city, stealing the color of its surroundings. Writers, artists, and poets have captured this special quality, absorbed it and then gifted us with their works. Take a stroll through the city with this unusual tour that tells the story of stones, shards, water, reflections, senses, herbs, and poets. We’ll start with a contemporary Venetian writer and poet in San Giacomo Dall’Orio and then lose ourselves in the company of other poets who have watched over Venice from the time of Dante, the great poet. Our journey will take us to the tail of the fish, the Arsenale, capturing the atmospheres and nuances of the queen of the lagoon, accompanied by fragments of poetry and tales. We’ll end our slow walk at the fondamenta of the incurables to remember a foreign poet who loved Venice so much and who is buried in the cemetery on the island of San Michele.
