A Lover of Venice

A site dedicated to the Queen of the Adriatic or, in the words of Joseph Brodsky, "the greatest masterpiece our species produced."

"The deposed, the defeated, the disenchanted, the wounded, or even only the bored have seemed to find there something that no other place could give." Henry James.

"I should say that, good though this place is for honeymoons, I've often thought it should be tried for divorces also." Joseph Brodsky.

"Venice is a sensual city, and there is something physiological about the devotion she inspires." Jan Morris.

"Venice has never been loved by those who want to change the world." Ian Littlewood.

"Anyone who loves Venice is a true Venetian." Mario Stefani

...For as long as there is Venice, I shall be happy.
