Corriere della Sera La Lettura San Clemente Venezia
“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” Robert Louis Stevenson
Corriere della Sera “La Lettura”
There are places far beyond imagination: San Clemente Palace in Venice is one of those. The island hosts this huge complex of buildings used in the past for different purposes. Today it’s an incredible super class hotel and resort about to close awaiting to rebirth again in someonelse’s management. It is empty now, and except for it’s majestic furnitures, rooms and lots of “presences” from the past, memories live strong in here and the environment is trully full of mistical atmosphere. The story tells that Ida Dalser, Mussolini’s wife was transferred in the Island of San Clemente with her son, Benito Albino Mussolini, son of the dictator after their marriage broke up. The story was written by Paolo Foschini special reporter for Corriere della Sera, together with my picture coverage. Here a few of the hundreds images I captured during my stay for this job. Enjoy it and fly away with this fascinating story of old memories.
