Rita Sartori & Alternative Venice
Over the years I happened to meet journalists and documentary filmmakers, all of them searching for the “real Venice”. Actually, an alternative Venice beyond the usual clichés.
I was very pleased to take them by the hand on some special guided tours and let them see Venice from its environmental and cultural perspective, unveiling its real nature and conveying a sense of place. The articles and the videos you’ll read and see in the posts hereunder tell about their Venice experience.
Their personal feelings, which surface from their works, picture a Venice that, although put under siege by one-day mass tourism and threatened by disputable economic policies, is still a haven for the (weary) soul and a reservoir of extraordinary beauty and cultural values.
