Item description for High Above Venice by Marcello Bertinetti...
Featuring hundreds of bird's-eye photographs, this volume expands our perceptions of a city that already looms large in our mind's eye. Whisking readers above Venice and its surrounding region, these images depict a city that is as breathtakingly beautiful in reality as it is in our imagination. A wide variety of panoramas depict the sights that are distinctly Venetian: the emerald-green Lagoon with its picturesque islands of Burano, Torcello, and Murano, the brightly-colored homes of Burano, the network of canals branching out from the S-shaped Grand Canal, the venerable palaces, centuries-old homes, and world-famous monuments which are all the more compelling when viewed from above. For anyone who has experienced the magic of Venice and the Veneto, this volume is a souvenir to be cherished. And for anyone who hopes to travel to this area, it will serve as an inspiration as well.
