Episode 2 Destination Deep Dive: Venice
In the second episode of Passport to Everywhere, Melissa Biggs Bradley transports you to Venice for a conversation about the city’s beauty and fragility with long-time residents and friends Countess Bianca Arrivabene and Toto Bergamo Rossi.
Bianca’s family has lived in the stunning Palazzo Papadopoli (now the Aman Venice) on the Grand Canal for over 200 years, and Toto has dedicated his life to safeguarding the city’s cultural heritage as Director of the Venetian Heritage Fund. The two Venetians will share what it’s like to live in this romantic floating city that’s also a center of Western art and culture. They will discuss the challenges facing the city today—from rising waters to overtourism—along with the promising initiatives underway to save it.
