We are almost there, just a few days remain before one of the most important events in Venice: the Carnival.

Venezia vive di luoghi comuni: l’amore, la gondola, Rialto e i tramonti sono spesso gli stereotipi per eccellenza di questa fantastica città. Ma come diceva Nancy Kress, “A stereotype may be negative or positive, but even positive stereotypes present two problems: They are cliches, and they present a human being as far more simple and uniform than any human being actually is”.

Dear friends welcome back to our blog,
Venice is full of commonplaces: love, gondolas, Rialto and nice sunsets are the most abused stereotypes about this fantastic city.
