Venice as you have never seen it: a city full of mystery and ancient charm, where every stone has its own legend to tell; a city of ghosts and mermaids, rich of historical anecdotes and treasures hidden within its precious marbles; a city built on the sea with a long history that echoes the lives of the many characters who dwelled in such unique surroundings. The Venetian writer Alberto Toso Fei, author of several books about Venice and its mysteries, will bring you into an exclusive journey through the Secret Serenissima, sharing the most mesmerizing stories of this city that stirs the imagination of people throughout the world.
Alberto Toso Fei is the descendent of one of the most ancient glass master’s families of the island of Murano. A voyager and a journalist, he wrote several books, translated into many languages (“Mysteries of Venice”, “The Secrets of the Grand Canal”, “Venetian legends and ghost stories”, “Venezia enigma”, “Shakespeare in Venice”), based on the re-discovery of oral tradition and storytelling. The author’s description of Venice is charming and fascinating, far from clichés and history books; much like a mosaic aiming at revealing, piece by piece, the enigmatic essence of the city, digging into its past through 13 centuries of history. The walking lecture has more to do with suggestion rather than art and with emotion rather than history, because Venice is undoubtedly the most beautiful city to visit, and the best one to lose oneself in.
