The burning question in 21st-century Venice is this: does the extraordinary lagoon city have a viable future as a living community or can it only and inevitably become a cultural Disneyland? This event brings together four people with strong personal, intellectual and artistic links with the city: the Venetian writer and academic Enrico Palandri, Alison Wright, Reader in Art History at UCL, Giulia Vio, a young Venetian studying Anthropology at UCL and Polly Coles, broadcaster, and author of the critically acclaimed ‘The Politics of Washing: Real Life in Venice’.
