For centuries, Venice has fired the imaginations of painters, poets, composers—and millions of visitors. In this four-part film series, historian Peter Ackroyd leads viewers on an unforgettable journey through piazzas and canals painted by Canaletto and Guardi, as well as private palazzos, magnificent churches, and winding alleyways. Interviews with preservationists also draw attention to desperate efforts to save the city’s treasures from the ravages of time and the sea. Offered in conjunction with the special exhibition Casanova: The Seduction of Europe.
