Venice is always a good idea…

September 04, 2012

…but in this period of the year – from the end of August to November – you can’t miss it. Not only one of the most fascinating city in the world, Venice – the real one in Italy, of course, not in Vegas – is, at least during these three months, full of artists, architects, designer who restless populate the tiny streets, the shining Piazza San Marco and the creative Giardini e Arsenale where “la 13. Biennale” of Architecture is hosted. The theme of this year is ‘common ground’. It is a way to help Architects to overcome the crisis and to feel closer to the society where we live. I still have to go to visit it, so I’ll write my opinion later on. If you are deciding whether to go, I’m sure that this editorial from Karl Lagerfield could be decisive for you. He caught part of the real essence of Venice: the most stylist part of the city, the shining and dramatic water of the Grand Canal, the beauty and mysterious luxury masks, the incredible strength of the monument and history. If you have ever been to Venice, do you agree with me? And if not, do you imagine it like this?

Venezia è sempre una buona idea…ma in questo periodo dell’anno – dalla fine di Agosto alla fine di Novembre – non si può proprio evitare di andarci. Non solo una delle città più affascinanti del mondo, Venezia – quella vera in Italia, non in Vegas – è per almeno questi tre mesi popolata da artisti, architetti, designer e creativi che popolano le strette stradine, la scintillante Piazza San Marco i ricchi di fermento Giardini e Arsenale che ospitato la 13. Biennale di Architettura. Il tema di quest’anno è ‘common ground’. Un modo di aiutare gli architetti a superare la crisi trovando dei nuovi rapporti e relazioni con la società nella quale viviamo. Se siete ancora indecisi se andare o no credo che questo editoriale realizzato da Karl Lagerfield posso darvi un buon aiuto in tal senso. Ha colto parte della vera essenza di Venezia: la parte più stilosa e mondana, l’acqua scintillante e drammatica del Canal Grande, la bellezza e il mistero delle maschere, l’incredibile forza dei monumenti e della storia. Se siete mai stati a Venezia, concordate con la sua visione? e se non ci siete stati ve la immaginate così?

    le foto relative al guggenheim sono assolutamente veritiere. Ho avuto modo di visitarlo molte volte da studentessa e specialmente la foto dalla roof terrace rende l’atmosfera glamour e raffinata del posto. Venezia è unica!

    • ciao Laura! anche io sono d’accordo te e mi piace la tua definizione di “atmosfera glamour e raffinata”….questa è decisamente Venezia, aggiungendoci un pò di romantica decadenza qua e là. buona giornata

    I cant wait. I hear its one of the most expensive cities to live and stay. But the with the poor economy hopefully the hotels have lowered prices like Rome has. Great post!!!!!

  3. Mi piace molto Venezia!

    I hope to make it back there some day soon. It’s a great city to visit during the off season.

    • Buongiorno Arlene! You absolutely have to give it a try. You won’t be upset! If you go in winter it can also happen that there is the “high water” and all the city is covered in more then half a meter of water.

    I love this city, but I did not care for all the pigeons and my ride in the gondola in Vegas seem to be more authentic because the person riding the gondola sang to us in Italian I didn’t get that treatment in Venice when I rode on the gondola, other than that it is a fabulous city and I hope to go back one day!

    Mi piace Venezia!! I fell in love the moment I saw the skyline. And I got lost…but that is what you are supposed to do in Venice.

    Venezia è magica!
    ci sono andate molte volte, con i miei, con amici, con la scuola ma non l’ho mai apprezzata…
    sono andata l’anno scorso per capodanno con il mio fidanzato e l’ho vista con occhi diversi… stupendo perdersi in quei viottoli che hanno visto gli innamorati nascondersi da occhi indiscreti e baci appassionati
    non so perchè ma passeggiando per i calli (perdendomi) respiravo un’atmosfera fiabesca e davvero piacevole
    Meta ideale per un weekend romantico

    Pretty To Be Happy
