Goodbye 2020! I think that everyone in the world is happy that you are finished…you have been so difficult and complicated. You took away some freedoms, like the freedom to travel, the freedom to stay with our friend, to hug our grandparents.
You took away legends like Maradona, Ennio Morricone, Kobe Bryant, Ezio Bosso, Gigi Simoni, Mario Corso, and many others…
You took away the job to many people, the concerts, the games at the stadium on Sunday, the family holidays.. you covered our smiles with masks and many other things that I prefer to not remember 🙂
Do not be angry, but we are really happy that you are going away, written in the pages of history, and we are so happy to say:
In Venice there are a lot of museums, churches, bacari and shops but if you stay for a long time here it could be useful to know how to do sport in Venice and keep yourself fit.
Many times walking through the campi (Venetian square) you can find children that play on the streets, people that do jogging, but are there fitness centers and football pitches in Venice? Yes, maybe they’re hidden, but you can find everything!
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”
