Francescos Venice
Arts, History, Travel Documentary published by BBC in 2007 - English
A breathtaking journey through the ages, telling the story of one of
the worlds most famous and beautiful cities. This lavish, landmark
series explores how a place with no firm ground, no crops, no
indigenous riches and no land army came to snatch success from the
jaws of failure time and time again - right up to the present day.
Step back in time to early Venice, recreated by the magic of CGI. See
wooden houses on stilts replaced by the daring rebuild in stone and
Witness the sacking of Constantinople and the Venice of Casanova,
Napoleon, Byron and Mussolini. The stunning recreations and
dramatisations in each episode are enriched by insights from
charismatic aristocrat, architect and historian Francesco da Mosto.
His family has lived in Venice for over a thousand years and, far from
having that sinking feeling, he believes passionately in the future of
this miraculous city...
Presented by Francesco da Mosta, architect, historian and filmmaker.
Profiles the history and secrets of Venice from its establishment in
the fifth century through the strong republican times to the modern
day. Features dramatised re-enactments, a tour of the city and look at
what the future could be for the city now that the sea levels are
1) Blood
In this edition, Da Mosto reveals a secret history of violence,
torture, political intrigue and revenge via the stunning interiors of
the Doges Palace, the Basilica of St Mark, the Ca da Mosto, the Ca
DOro and the first low-level aerial shots of the city in years.
2) Beauty
The golden age of architecture arrived and stone and marble palaces
replaced wooden houses as artists like Titian and Palladio transformed
the look and reputation of Venice. But a calamity lurked just around
the corner - plague.
3) Sex
He moves on to its most outrageous period of partying and
licentiousness - the age of Casanova and the courtesan, when Venice
was the red-light district of Europe and attracted rich and hopeful
dandies from across the continent. But storm clouds lay on the horizon
when Napoleon Bonaparte saw Venice as rich pickings with which to fund
his revolution.
4) Death
He moves towards the present day and the problems of the sinking city,
for which he partly blames the tourist industry originally inspired by
those such as Byron. Francesco was a young boy during the great flood
of 1966 and he looks at ways the future of Venice can be safeguarded
in the future.
