Venice

From time to time, RenaissanceRules posts articles that are based upon the history, geomorphology, culture, architecture, planning, zeitgeist, music and the food (mangia!) of Venice, La Serenissima, always with personal observations based upon my “on the ground” and “in the Lagoon” experiences.  As you read them, you may expect to obtain some education, common and unique insights, and a lot of esoteric thoughts!

Posts are categorized under the headings The Intentional City, Music, Zeitgeist, Churches, Campi, Elements of the City, and Book Reviews.  Do not be surprised to find elements of any of these categories in any of the other posts, because,

The fabric and essence of Venice weave a complex tapestry.

Here is a guide.  As you would do in Venice, wander around to find new sights, insights and pleasures.  Enjoy!
