a first impression of Venice

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

Venice – where keeping the heritage equals to being backwards, people are not helpful and just making hard things for you.

This is a personal account of my first impressions here, and my second trip to Italy in general. I’m impressed – but not positively. The place reminds me of a circus built of facades, everyone very intent on not breaking their historic character. But behind all this, it’s like being in Tarkovsky’s Stalker, a place long abandoned, with hidden threats, obstacles looming all over.
