Title: Il Canalazzo: rapsodia di acqua e di fuoco
Authors: Puppa, Paolo
Issue Date: 2007
Publisher: Padova, Studio Editoriale Gordini
Abstract: The Grand Canal is a sort of place of memory, an area which preserves like a holy shrine a number of festivities, historical regattas, processions and sumptuous liturgies, fabulous weddings, famous love affairs and experiences of great men letters. The reasons for this is that the Canal has always been the real centre of the city, especially during its economic and cultural developement. The memory of great political events and their official consecration floats along these waters, in a political form of religiousness. Well, the theatre has mightily spread more along this little river that cuts Venice in two, than on the stage that the Srenissima has been nourishing and patronizing throughout the centuries.
