Floating Stones: The Architecture of the City of Venice.

For the global imagination, Italian architecture is exemplified by the magnificent city of Venice.

«…Let me reiterate: water equals time and provides beauty with its double. Part water, we serve beauty in the same fashion. By rubbing water, this city improves time’s looks, beautifies the future. That’s what the role of this city in the universe is. Because the city is static while we are moving. The tear is proof of that. Because we go and beauty stays. Because we are headed for the future, while beauty is the eternal present.»

Josif Brodskij, Watermark – Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1992
