What are you reading?


I have had my nose glued to this book ever since I opened it.  John Berendt's The City of Falling Angels is a non-fiction view of the people who make Venice what it is.  While I have been to Venice and fell in love with it as any person with a love for that elegance would, I didn't experience what this book offers.  It opens the doors to residences that the tourist walks past.  I find it to make Venice something personal rather that a destination.  It takes you inside the homes of Venetians and the extravagance of the palaces on the Grand Canal.  It also focuses on the last fire of the Fenice which I find so interesting because this is something the tour guides, for a reason I cannot imagine, neglected to mention.  If you love Venice, this is definitely a read for you!

Ah...Venezia che Magia!...Venice, What a magical atmosphere, History, Art, Beauty...a Dream.
But...Goethe in his Book "Voyage in Italy" said..."L'Italia vista senza la Sicilia non lascia alcuna traccia di sè nel Cuore...la Sicilia è la Chiave di tutto!"
Greetings from Sicily
