'If Venice Dies'
Salvatore Settis poses the questions What is Venice worth? To whom does this urban treasure belong? This evening he will present the English edition of his book 'If Venice Dies', a fiery blend of history and cultural analysis. Settis argues that Western civilisation's prime achievements face impending ruin from mass tourism and global cultural homogenisation. This is a passionate plea to secure Venice's future, written with consummate authority, wide-ranging erudtion, and elan.
Salvatore Settis is an archaelogist, art historian and former director of the Getty Research Institute of Los Angeles and the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa. He is chairman of the Louvre Museum's Scintific Council. Settis is the author of several books on art history.
