Venice: City of Art by Matteo Varia

Venice is a city like no other on earth with its canals, fabulous architecture, and fabled history. In this collection of remarkable photographs, Venice is revealed anew, through portraits that reveal its story through the ages: from Gothic and Renaissance days to the Neoclassical and Romantic eras. The book features not only the great landmarks around and beyond Piazza San Marco, but also everyday scenes discovered in alleyways and narrow canals. Capturing striking vistas and scenes both familiar and little-known, and with a text that provides a fresh and approachable introduction to the history of the city, this book will be treasured by all those who love, or dream about, the magical city of Venice.
