I don’t know exactly why, but it is and it will probably be forever. Fact is that the title of my post is one of his quotes about this Italian town.
I’ve always considered Venice one of the most beautiful and magical cities in the world and I’m never tired of visiting it. I don’t even remember how many times I’ve seen this town in my life.
There are endless declarations of love on Venice by anyone who has seen this splendid city at least once.

a secret gondola song,
quivering with iridescent happiness.
— Did anyone listen to it?”
