Feeling close to the early settlers of the Lagoon

Francesco da Mosto's family has been living in Venice for more than a thousand years, a noble family to be seen following this link. I would like to share a link to an episode of his series "Francesco's Venice" as I consider it such a valuable introduction for all those who want to really connect to Venice (and its gardens of course), understand how Venice was built and how difficult it was and is to retrieve land from the lagoon. By the way, Mr. Da Mosto has also written an excellent book on Venice food traditions, sharing many family recipes and cooking secrets.
As soon as this video has finished, you can continue watching the series by just clicking on the next video appearing automatically on the screen.
