Item description for Venice: The Grand Canal by Daniele Resini...
Fernando Bertuzzi is not at all unhappy that his photographs should project such a traditional imag e of the lagoon city. He is interested in a Venic e beyond time that is as near as possible to the Venice of Ponti, Nava and, of course, Canaletto.

Reviews - What do customers think about Venice: The Grand Canal?
Very Cool. Apr 20, 2008
We saw this book for sale during our honeymoon in Venice, so we knew what to expect re: layout. It is a lovely book, very thorough. Thrilled to have found it.
Molto Disappointed. Jan 17, 2007
Before you buy this, note something very important: it is NOT a book, and it is NOT a book of panoramic photos of the Grand Canal! I just opened mine, and sadly, it's a foldout of the entire Grand Canal. You just keep unfolding and unfolding. And while it certainly shows you every location along the canal, you can't flip through it page by page. I think I'm going to return mine. Buyer beware!
Venice Panorama Mar 19, 2006
If you have ever been to Venice or contemplate going, this panorama of the Grand Canal is a beautiful reminder or a great advanced organizer.
Behind the Façades of the Grand Canal in Venice Nov 13, 2005
If you have ever glided through the Grand Canal of Venice either on vaporetto or gondola and wondered just what each mysterious façade contained, historically and culturally, then this magnificent 'book' is definitely for your attention. The unique format allows viewing the unlimited perusal of the scope of buildings that receive the kiss of the lapping waters created by the water traffic along the romantic Grand Canal.
Unfolding to a very long length the photograph is a scan of the entire canal without the distortion of an awkward normal camera lens. The result is a head-on portrait of each of the palaces/homes/buildings in that glorious array of Venetian colors, and below each building on the slow gaze passing is the name and a bit of information about that building (family/dates/other tidbits.
Not meant to be a definitive discussion of The Grand Canal (that is available in another volume), this foldout book by Daniele Resini is more for the eye than the mind and as such it succeeds to entice, or to simply as memory visions of Venice for the lonely traveler. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, November 05
