The breadbasket of Italy.
The cultural centre of Western civilisation.
Both are up for debate.
But it’s a place of great light.
This on my camera. A Canon 6D, as we pulled into Venice Train Station on the Vaporetta.
And this on my iPhone 6. As we left for the evening in Bologna.

There’s much to savour at La Biennale but this was our collective favourite.
Here’s what they say about it.
“Peace on Earth!” by Gyula Várnai and curated by Zsolt Petrányi is a project based on the viability and the imminent need of utopias; it’s about the disillusion we have about the future and about the things that have not come true, but especially it’s a show concerning new technologies, global economies and natural crisis, giving the viewer the chance to make a deep reflection on a future that is growing faster than before.
The entire pavilion is just a stunning display of modern art but this piece stole it for us.
The rainbow needs closer scrutiny. Turns out is made up of a kaleidescope of 1960’s pin badges…
Like this one…
We didn’t see Gyula Várnai’s neon piece at night but this is how it looks…
The Biennale is incredible. This won our vote.
