Last Monday we had a call with two founders of Cocai Express, a new food delivery start up born in Venice during the lockdown with the aim of helping local restaurants to deliver food for Venetian citizens.
Don’t be scary, you’ll not receive your food through seagulls (in this case I don’t think that you’d receive anything 🙂 ), but Cocai runners are guys that will take you the food that you’ve ordered through the App.
This month we decided to re-start our joyful collaboration with Venice in Pattern. As usual, we will try to link a special person (Massimo Scolari) to a place (ex Cotonificio Olcese) , telling a story of emotions.
While Italy is facing another (almost total) lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the entire world is living a general situation of uncertainty, just a few things seem enjoyable and stable nowadays. That’s why today we want to talk about food, something that, we are sure, can only cheer you up. We all know that Italy is known for the refined cuisine that it’s basically inimitable. However, typical Venetian dishes are way more unique. Let’s discover them.
“Utopies réalisables”. That’s the title of the famous book published by Yona Friedman, renowned international architect and one of the most important figures in the field of design. An utopia is something imaginative, and basically not likely to be realised. But Yona Friedman did it. And not in any random places. We, Venice by Venetians and Venice in Pattern, are going to tell you everything about this interesting figure and his great contribution to Venice, in particular in the Arsenal.
It’s been already six months since the start of the Italian lockdown imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Althought the isolation has probably been the most necessary method to slow down the illness and allow hospitals to better manage their spaces and capacities, the consequences for commerce and tourism have been really serious. The tertiary sector is facing a powerful crisis, which is hitting all the Italian cities, including Venice.
Just 3 months ago it seemed an unrealistic and utopic idea, but neither Coronavirus pandemic has stopped this marvellous period of the year: September means Venice International Film Festival, one of the oldest ones and among the “Big Five”, including Cannes, Berlin, Toronto and Sundance (Salt Lake, USA). However, the background of Venice gives chills and an atmosphere that won’t probably be experienced elsewhere. Let’s discover together the news and projects that 2020 Venice Film Festival has to offer. Continue reading “2020 VENICE FILM FESTIVAL, 77th EDITION”
You all know Venice for its architecture, culture, churches and food, but how many of you know Venice beaches? Yes, you can have some relax and tan in Venice, and I’m not talking of Venice Beach in California 🙂
Let’s see (in our opinion) 5 best beaches in and around Venice!
1. Lido di Venezia
A thin island that stretches for about twelve kilometers, it is bordered at the ends by the ports of San Nicolò and Malamocco, connected to Venice and equipped with roads, with a thirty-hectare pine forest behind of the sea and the Blue Flag which often rewards the cleanliness of the water.
Maybe you all know Lido di Venezia for the International Venice Film Festival, but we can assure you that the beach is very cool too!
