MuseumCalle della Carità, 1050, 30123 Venezia VE, Italy
"It's a public museum. I like every single tableau because you have this game of lights that all these moments of Tiziano Vecelli and Paolo Veronese — they were really the masters of this kind of particular light. And it probably reminds me of this game of colors and light that Venice offers."
Neighborhood30126 Metropolitan City of Venice
"The Lido it's really the place where you can see all the Venetians going during the summer. A lot of Venetians that don't like to live in Venice go to the Lido to really live there. And so every morning they they take the vaporetto (ferry) and they come to Venice for school or for work."
Teatro La Fenice
Performing arts theaterCampo S. Fantin, 1965, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy
"The most incredible theater in the world. It's not very big compared to the ones in Napoli, but it's 10 times more beautiful. It's very Baroque inside, and when you look up there is a statue of people bringing together their hands and it makes me think that art brings people together."
