Venice Under Water

Dateline Italia – Despite all the gloom and doom prognostication, Venice is still afloat. Next week, the Venice Biennale will begin, and if the weight of that many artists (and their egos) doesn’t sink the legendary city, little else will. If you doubt this claim, just ask Giorgio Camuffo, the self-proclaimed “only true Venetian” living in Venice who exemplifies the city’s heart and soul. As publisher, editor, and designer of a new magazine Venice is Not Sinking, Camuffo celebrates all that is above the waterline in clever, gorgeous, and intelligent ways. This postmodern version of a city magazine does not provide service alone, but also a satisfying diet of news, views, and passion only by Venetians.
