Reviews - What do customers think about Dreaming Venice?

Venice Comes Alive in Bertuzzi's Photos  Nov 21, 2007
I was just in Venice from November 8, 2007 to November 14, 2007, and it was very cold weather, bone-chilling and damp at night, but the city made you forget the cold with its beauty and uniqueness. It is a magical city of dreams, unreal and ethereal. While there I bought this little book with its wonderful evocative color photographs that make the city come to vivid life. These are stunning memorable shots of the city like no other. Venice shrouded in rare snow storms, with flood waters in San Marco Square, scenes at night along the canals, the Bridge of Sighs, the Bacino, water pageants, gondolas, the Rialto Bridge, reflections of the sinking houses on the canals, the Grand Canal, colonnades, baroque churches with great art, quiet secret gardens, cloisters and gardens, the stone wells that are everywhere, the lion symbols, the Doge's Palace. Two glorious churches among a hundred are Santi Giovanni e Paolo and La Basilica della Salute (the dome presently covered in scaffolding).
Venice is a dying city, but its glories live in your memory forever in these pictures: the library in San Marco Piazza, , the marble statuary, the palazzos, the campos, seagulls, the feast days and Regatta Storica, the celebration of oared boats, Carnevale with its scary costumes and masks, magical sunsets, the city at night, and magnificent fireworks displays. The camera of Frenando Bertuzzi has caught in his lens the shimmering city where life is more fantastic and glorious than in any other city in the world.

Evocative images and words  Jun 16, 2007
This lovely book combines photos and text, in Italian and English, to remind all lovers of this historic, artistic and romantic place of their enchanted time there. It is a fitting tribute to La Serenissima, by people who know and lover her.
Stunning Photography  Jan 11, 2007
I have a few coffee table books on Venice, and none of them hold a candle to the photography in this book, which I originally bought in Venice last time I was there. there is a large hardcover version out there as well, but it may not be available on this site. The pictures are LUSCIOUS -- if you are a lover of Venice, buy this book.
Gorgeous photograhs, but too small  Dec 23, 2006
The photographs in this book are beautiful and really give the reader a good feeling for Venice. However, the size of the book (something that I did not notice before purchasing) is only 6" x 6". Becuase of this small size, the photographs are not given their true justice. This book would be so much more effective if in coffee table size.
Venice as it should be.....  Nov 13, 2006
The most beautiful little book on Venice I have seen...
The pictures are exquisitely taken. The composition of the pictures,
perfect and the gold and rose colours of the city are gorgeous.

If you want to see Venice as it perhaps once was, and perhaps in some
areas still is, then this is the book to get.

The first sentence in the book sums it up... 'Venice is a place
in which you never know where dream ends and history begins'.

The book is magical. Definately a book to pick up again and again.
