Taking the fire that destroyed the Fenice theatre in 1996 as his starting point, John Berendt creates a portrait of Venice and its extraordinary inhabitants. Beneath the exquisite facade of the world's most beautiful historic city, scandal, corruption and venality… are rampant, and John Berendt is a master at seeking them out. It is the inhabitants of Venice who are the real stars of this story: Ezra Pound and his mistress, Olga; poet Mario Stefani; the Rat Man of Treviso; or Mario Moro self-styled carabiniere, fireman, soldier or airman, depending on the day of the week. 2006.
