Playing with Art
text by Sandra Rosi

A new city, a new discovery. Through the pages of this book, young readers will discover a place unique the world over, a treasure chest of timeless masterpieces. On foot or in a vaporetto, on streets or sailing the Grand Canal, we go in search of ancient Venetian symbols like the gondola and the winged lion, historical traditions such as the dazzling Carnival with its masks, marionettes and the Marriage of the Sea ceremony, without overlooking classical myths such as Daedalus and Icarus, Orpheus and Eurydice, filtered and interpreted by the masterful hand of Antonio Canova . . .
Thanks to the combination of drawings and paintings, the art and history of La Serenissima become accessible and immediate for young readers, who will grow up into the adults of tomorrow.
After the great success of Florence, Siena and Rome, the “Playing with Art” series has finally reached the Lagoon.
