Venice art city St Mark square Unesco world heritage
Venice is a magic town unique of all the art cities. And arrives at the present day intact and fascinating. Most of all thanks to the continuing work of man who was able to protect this town. Furthermore over the centuries from all kinds of internal and external threats. However, a city created on the water. Hence with an ecosystem that Venice preserves to save the hydraulic environment of the lagoon. And thanks also to the expertises of the scientists and the technology, with the flow of finance resources. Hence it is a territory program of high strategic breadth.
Most of all Venice is the union of trade between land and sea. The town is able to determine and to govern from the center of the system (the lagoon) flows of capital, goods, knowledges and ideas. It’s been for over a century the center of the Mediterranean. And therefore of the world trade. In its golden and voluptuous sunset, Venice has been able to be the European capital of the theater, of festivals and of the joy of life. In conclusion the desire of every intellect. The city is for all mankind the unattainable dream of a timeless place. Perhaps the Morgana of an impossible and different life.
Between water and sky
This city transmits always amazement and admiration. The island rises four kilometers far from the mainland and two from the Adriatic sea. Therefore, it has more than a hundred islands and canals. Also over four hundred bridges and one single square (as you know, the others are “campi” and “campielli”). At the same time real and unreal, it seems that arises from nothing between the water and the sky. Its long and glorious politic and artistic season lasted a millennium with 120 doges. For a while, its history was not a chapter of the Italian one but it was in a broader scope. Hence it was for over a century the center of the Mediterranean and thus of the world trade.
And as a result, now the city and its lagoon are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
