Description
In a city built on a lagoon, water is a simply a fact of life—including the periodic higher-than-usual high tide, the acqua alta, which floods Venice's cobblestone streets and invades its shops and homes, surprising and delighting tourists while forcing residents to don their long boots and get on with life as best they can. Gianfranco Viola gives us a fascinating portrait of Venice in high water through 110 large color photos, sparing a few lovely, mirrorlike images of buildings in the water but primarily focusing on the faces and body language of citizens and tourists encountering their strange circumstances, from a gondolier nudging his boat under a bridge to Julia Roberts surrendering to the moment with a smile.
