The Grand Canal, which runs through the city, is usually the first thing you discover in Venice. The Venetian palaces that border it, the jewels of the Serenissima, are the only evidence of the greatness, power and beauty of the city, while the squares, piers and bridges bear witness to its activity. The boat is by far the best way to discover it. I offer you this vision, frontal and systematic, in a spectacular 2x18 m long brochure. The ethereal tonality of its images enhances the delicacy of the buildings and reinforces the romantic character of the city.
