Francesco's Venice - Count Francesco da Mosto

Recommended Posts

Francesco da Mosto, 'Signor Venezia' to his neighbours brings to us a unique history of Venice from the 8th century to the present day. The da Mosto family has lived in Venice for over 1000 years (the oldest house on the Grand Canal is the Ca' da Mosto, lost to the family after an unwise marriage in the 1700s) and his family history is interweaved with the story of Venice.

 

Drawing on the elemental themes of Venice - political, artistic and cultural. He tells the story of this fascinating city through the places, events and people, including his own ancestors.

 

Published to accompany a four-part TV series, this history features a wealth of stunning images, both of the magnificent set pieces of Venice, such as St Mark's Basilica and the Square, and the bridge of Sighs, and the lesser-known private corners of the city, which hold essential clues to the city's story.
