“Wanderlust” magazine wanted a short piece from me on the theme of ‘Five Hidden Gems in Venice.’ I actually found this a bit difficult. What is there to add to a city so well documented? And I wondered if some of my original ideas – such as Carlo Scarpa’s Olivetti showroom in Piazza San Marco – might be a little too obscure. In the end, I chose five islands that are all worth a visit.
I was very pleased to see a review in Friday’s Daily Mail.
I wonder what Nathan’s communist friends would have made of it??
