Very witty. My middle name is actually Ivan [but no Russian ancestry] – perhaps that’s why I was so curious.
Those photos are beautiful. Venice is my favourite place in the world [so far]. Funny, I’ve never been to the Biennale or that Scuola. Is the Scuola near the public Gardens and La Chiesa di San Francesco Della Vigna [a dull Rennaissance church] in a really lovely quitet area; always there is the sweet sound of birdsong.
I believe they were always religious in nature – places of worship as well as conference and ceremony etc.
