Venice has 'captured' the heart, mind and imagination of so many writers, poets, artists and historians. Venice is one of my favourite subjects in art, literature and history, and I am always eager to learn more and look more at this unique and special place. This Venice blog is my way of collecting the wealth of images, poems, prose and impressions of Venice.

Happy Birthday, Venice (Venice facts #2)

It’s already 26 March as sit typing this at my desk in Sydney, Australia.

But in Venice, it’s still 25 March, and this is the traditional founding date of the city, when its first church, San Giacomo di Rialto was consecrated on the stroke of noon on 25 March 421.

I’m having a spritz in celebration….
