Venice, of all the worldâ€™s great cities, is said to be the one most present in the popular imagination: even those who have never been there feel they already have. As the most photographed and filmed city for the purposes of advertising, our apparent familiarity with the city isnâ€™t surprising. Add to this flms such as Death in Venice, Donâ€™t Look Now and The Wings of the Dove and the fctions they were based on, and it isnâ€™t surprising that Venice already exists in our heads. The paintings of Canaletto, the music of Vivaldi and Albinoni, and Shakespeareâ€™sA Merchant of Venice also create the prism through which we view the city from the moment it comes into view on our frst unforgettable visit â€“ unforgettable because Venice turns out to be much more than its familiar representation.
