Victorian Venice

[vc_row][vc_column 0=””][vc_column_text]If you’re like me, you don’t need much of an excuse to immerse yourself in pictures of Venice.  Here’s a simple but very effective idea.  Why not collect together paintings to re-create a sense of what the city looked like at one particular period?  ‘How Venice Looked to Victorian Travelers c1890’ does precisely that – here.  (And why not listen to piano solo ‘A Day in Venice’ by Fivos Valachis while you’re scrolling?)

 

‘Casanova in Paris: The Shadows of the King’ is now freely available here.

Long form articles on Casanova’s life and times are freely available here.
