Woody Allen on Venice

“The minute I set eyes on Venice I fell in love with it.  I got married in Venice, I sang in a movie in Venice, and I’ve had the pleasure of getting lost a hundred times walking in the streets.” – Woody Allen in Dream of Venice

Julie Christie on Venice

“The unexpected mystery of Venice… misleading reflections, startling shadows, ominous light and shade, and endless corners.  What’s around the next one?  My view may, of course, be coloured by the film I was making there.  It was winter and raining, but winter is Venice’s season.  As water is Venice’s element.” – Julie Christie

A diva on Venice

“Venice, the city where I seem never to know if I’m walking through the changing scenes of a play or the dreamlike slow motion of a film.  Everything seems like an apparition floating in time, belonging to a world that exists just in my imagination.  Dramatic images of a theater in flames engulf my mind, reminding me that the boxes of La Fenice are different now, an illusion of the theater as it used to be, which is lost forever.

“But like Venice, the phoenix stands defiant, a proud symbol of rebirth rather than a memorial to the devouring blaze that tried to snuff out its glorious past.”
