saturday wheather report : old words…

carved on the Stones of Venice.

Venezia come città romantica è stata inventata durante l’Ottocento da artisti anglosassoni come John Ruskin e John Singer Sargent . Però nella vecchia città è come stare perennemente sotto gli occhi severi di pietra delle statue, siano esse religiose o civili. Un osservatore silenzioso di chi la sta visitando. E questo da secoli.

During the nineteenth century anglosaxon artists like John Ruskin and John Singer Sargent invented Venice as romantic city. However within many centuries the city was never so romantic: this is not to say Venice was a version of Gotham City but from a young age when my parents driving me throught the venetian streets I was impressed by the stone statues.
These stone statues, civil or religious, had egle-eyed as a silent threatening look. For centuries this has been.

On 1555 the philosopher Guillaume Postel was arrested in this house by the Holy Inquisition.

The words in ancient venetian language carved in stone say : here your complaint regarding medical malpractice in Dorsoduro neighborhood.
