Holidays sweet holidays... A glimpse into the Venice Fashion night and La Biennale

“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware" (Martin Buber)

Dear horse lovers, my trip to Venice was a fascinating journey into the creative life of the city! I could only see a little but it was enough to leave behind the ordinary and everyday ;-) I went there for a weekend last November during the International Architecture Festival of La Biennale and the Venice Fashion night, the perfect match to get lost down into its hundreds of alleyways!

A wonder around the beautiful canals of Venice

The Venetian carnival masks in papier-mâché of La Mascareta

A glorious warm sunset from the Rialto Bridge! Around the corner you can enjoy a spectacular drink or a meal with a beautiful view at the lovely Taverna del Campiello Remer

Fundamentals is the Venice Biennale 14th International Architecture Festival directed by Rem Koolhaas.

The Arsenale area

The Maison Dom-ino designed by Le Corbusier in 1914, a famous housing prototype of the Great War years in the Giardini area

Girls wearing Raptus and Roses’s dresses designed by Silvia Bisconti for the Venice Fashion Night 

Amazing aperitivo at the glamorous Oriental Bar of the Hotel Metropole 

The bridge of Sighs
