AT THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
The Library of Congress European Division in partnership with the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute present If Venice Dies, a talk by Professor Salvatore Settis.
“Anyone…who has a special place for that city in their heart--they have serious responsibilities and crucial tasks ahead of them: to prove that the city’s beauty and diversity are not just cumbersome legacies of the past, but an extraordinary gift that allows us to embrace the present and an extraordinary endowment for building and securing the future.”
With a tour de force discussion on the meaning of cities, Professor Settis pleads for the survival of Venice.
