Plaques and Inscriptions in the Municipality of Venice
Gianni Simionato (Supernova, October 2014)
An exhaustive collection of more than a thousand plaques and inscriptions scattered around the city, and also within the limits of Cavallino-Treporti (a municipality formed in 1999), Portegrandi and Dolo, where there are two inscriptions that concern Venice. The book is the product of long, painstaking research that the author has pursued with great enthusiasm for over thirty years. He has identified the sites and copied out the texts, word for word and digit for digit, bringing us a work that merits an important position in the limitless biography of Venice.
