THE VENICE VOICE

For one whole hour THE WANDSWORTH VOICE has become THE VENICE VOICE … or indeed LA VOCE DI VENEZIA.

And many comparisons there are … lots of water and lots of bridges … lots of places selling pizza … even the waiters have their visual counterparts in Brady’s …

However … (Don’t Look Now) … unlike Wandsworth, their bridges, albeit only a few centuries older, are in much better nick … and I haven’t seen any decomposing dolphins either.

Finally, for all my literary readers, we doubt whether Thomas Mann would have the same international success with ‘Death in Wandsworth’ and nor would the Bard of Avon have received such lasting renown with ‘Othello: The Moor of Wandsworth’.

  1. It must be beautiful being in Venice when there are not so many crowds, and when the mists come up from the lagoon. Torcello in the Autumn is quite something.

    1. Susan … I haven’t been here for quite a few years but still the magic prevails. On previous visits going to the islands in the Lagoon – especially at Christmas time – was more than special.
      I’m actually just passing through but even the shortest visit is simply meraviglioso … Best wishes. John x
