500th Anniversary of the Venetian Ghetto

Posted by Avital Pinnick on December 27, 2016

2016, which will be over in a few days, is the 500th anniversary of the Jewish Ghetto in Venice. It was pouring when we arrived at Piazzale Roma by bus from the airport. While waiting for the apartment owner, I photographed the tram before it left the station. The People Mover was decorated with photos from the Ghetto.

Video: Guitarists in the Venetian Ghetto

Gallery, Venetian Ghetto

A couple guitarists in an art gallery in the Jewish ghetto in Venice. I thought they were pretty good, so I made this video. The camera angle could have been better for seeing the fancy picking, but I didn’t think the guy at the desk would appreciate my sitting in his lap. The video was shot with an iPod.
