Today is a special day for Venice, as they celebrate 1600th anniversary of its founding. I received the news from the hotel we stayed at in 2018. They send a newsletter every season to keep in touch and share the latest news. They remarked that this day as a sign of rebirth. Spring blossomed a few days ago, and "in a quiet and sunny Venice, when all is silent and the dolphins waltz into the Canal Grande, we take this time as an opportunity to work, to keep on dialoguing with the most authentic and lifeful realities of the island."
Happy Birthday Venice! Salute!
