About the Author

Tiziano Scarpa was born in Venice, Italy in 1963. He is a novelist, poet, playwright, and journalist. In 1997 he won the Italia Prize for his writing. Scarpa’s lyrical novel, Stabat Mater (Serpent’s Tail, 2011) was awarded the Strega Prize, Italy’s most prestigious literary honor. His acclaimed Venice is a Fish: a Sensual Guide (Gotham Books, 2008) is known throughout the world as an idiosyncratic celebration of Venice. Corpo (Einaudi, 2005) is a collection of aphorisms and short stories about fifty parts of the human body. His books have been translated into many languages including Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hebrew, and Arabic. Scarpa has collaborated with musicians (jazz, rock, classical, pop) including Enrico Rava, Marlene Kuntz, Michele Tadini, and Debora Petrina. His essays about modern and contemporary art have featured Anish Kapoor, Tino Seghal, Mimmo Rotella, and Giorgio De Chirico. He currently lives in Venice. JoAnn Locktov is the founder of Bella Figura Publications, an imprint dedicated to publishing books on Venice. She previously edited the first two books in the "Dream of Venice" series. Beyond publishing, JoAnn is a dynamic resource on the subject of Venice. Her views on Venice, both political and cultural, have been featured in podcasts, interviews, and articles. Prior to publishing the "Dream of Venice" series, JoAnn wrote two books on contemporary mosaics for Rockport Publishers, Inc.
