The island of Torcello

Before the rise of Venice, Torcello was the richest settlement in the lagoon, as evidenced by the extraordinary buildings that surround its square. It is a fascinating and wild island with a dense vegetation and paths that seem to have never been trodden.

The great Ernest Hemingway, who lived in the famous “red house”, found inspiration for some of his works on this island. Venice and the Lagoon were in fact the setting for his famous novel Across The River and Into The Trees.

In the footsteps of the American writer, we visit the lagoon landscape that inspired him and we enter Casa Andrich, a house-museum where the grandson of the two artists who lived there guides us on a fascinating journey through silks, tapestries, glass, sculptures, paintings, engravings, mosaics and furniture.
