Dream of Venice in Black and White reveals Venice as a narrative in chiaroscuro. Over 50 photographers have documented the city to create a visual legacy of elegant realism in light and shadow. The acclaimed Italian author Tiziano Scarpa contributes a poignant reflection of his life as a Venetian, experiencing perpetual change. His eloquent and candid Introduction exposes the complex issues that threaten the survival of his city. Venice has had the audacity to exist as a living city for over 1,500 years. But for how much longer?
