"Art teaches nothing, except the significance of life!"
-- Henry Miller
One cannot spend a single moment in Italy without wondering about the overall significance of art in and on our lives! More to the point, the impact Italian art has had on our civilization is truly immeasurable. From Michelangelo to Morandi, Da Vinci to Rafael, Modigliano to Donatello, Italian art has more than helped shape and influence our world as we know it today! Nowhere is it more evident than in Venice! So go ahead and indulge yourself -- sit back, throw your feet up on your desk, sip your extra foamy latte, and allow me to take you on a little cultural stroll through Venezia, "The Queen of the Adriatic!" If you are so inspired, procure a copy of "The Innocents Abroad," flip to chapter 22 and treat yourself to Mark Twain's unforgettable experiences in, none other than, The City on the Water. Ahhhhh... That's what I'm talking about!
Venezia -- Ti amo con tutta l'anima!
