PETER ACKROYD

Venice revealed DVD

This documentary from Athena Learning and Colonial Pictures for Sky Arts finds historian-cum-belletrist Peter Ackroyd leading viewers on a multidimensional tour of Venice, one of Italy’s most intriguing and mysterious cities. As Ackroyd tours such landmarks as churches, palazzos, alleyways and much more, he opts to focus on Venetian art (immortalized in tableaux by Guardi and Canaletto), music such as the hymns of Vivaldi performed by Vivaldi’s Women – Schola Pietatis Antonio Vivaldi – harpsichord played by Bridget Cunningham and theatre (typified by the legendary Venetian carnival). The film also interpolates conversations with preservationists struggling to protect the city’s artifacts from time and the sea. Buy now on acornonline http://acornonline.com/venice-revealed/p/14922/
