Product description

Review

Venice belongs to the whole world, as demonstrated by these intensely felt reactions by people of many nationalities to its beauty and livability despite the uncontrolled tourist numbers. This book should be a wake-up call to the Italian authorities who so mismanage the city. --Anna Somers Cocks, former chairman, the Venice in Peril Fund and founder-editor, The Art Newspaper

With its artfully evocative photography and illuminating, often-poetic, essays, Dream of Venice Architecture pierces the myths and mist of this enchanting city with fresh insights into its myriad sensory pleasures. From exotic buildings whose facades resemble carpets to pirouetting wind vanes that signal the onset of the latest Adriatic weather, Dream of Venice Architecture captures both the magic and the mysteries of this precarious paradise. --Blair Kamin, architecture critic, Chicago Tribune

Dream of Venice Architecture is a visual and visceral examination of the dueling, often antithetical forces that make Venice like no other place. Architecture's top minds navigate the personal channels of memory in a city that is both sinister and tranquil, profound and lithe. Riccardo De Cal s haunting images demonstrate its multitudes it is all encompassing and singular somewhat like the human experience. You come to understand the idea that ancient Venice, built on brown waters, is beautiful in spite of itself. --Mieke ten Have, design editor at large, Elle Decor
