About

The Grand Canal, published by the Vendome Press in 1993, written by Umberto Franzoi, detailing a comprehensive history of the Grand Canal and every significant building along it featuring over 200 color images in 1993. The Grand Canal reproduces the journey along the world's most picturesque waterway through beautiful photographs of illustrious palaces, and public and religious buildings, all taken from the perspective of a boat. Each photograph displays a length of 278 feet of building fa ades allowing the reader study every block of the historic events and architectural history of each edifice. The introduction explains the story of the Grand Canal and of its importance as the place from which the city developed and its splendor grew. The narrative is accompanied by images of a Venice long gone, available only through these photographs from old souvenir albums, which were once sold to tourists at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The very name Grand Canal seems to conjure images of urban culture lived at the height of exotic luxury and ease, along a broad waterway gracefully meandering through the heart of ancient Venice, its glittering course lined on either side with balconied palaces and afloat with gondolas bearing romantic couples in thrall to the serenade of barcarolin tenors. This is a beautiful large hardcover coffee table Art and architectural Design book.
