Keep calm, because there are some great films that are set in Venice and now we’ll see the most important (at least in our opinion 🙂 )

We are almost there, just a few days remain before one of the most important events in Venice: the Carnival.
Have you ever been in Venice during the Carnival? It is a very fun and amazing experience.

Cari amici, ben tornati sul nostro blog.
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”.
