Friedrich Nietzsche believed that there should be only one synonym for “Venice” in any dictionary, in any language: the only word he thought worthy of replacing the city’s name is “music”.
The German philosopher’s toughest opponents would have been the many people who consider Venice the “City of Lovers” par excellence, who would probably prefer the word “love” instead.
Others would certainly criticize this stereotype as well, quoting Peggy Guggenheim: “It is always assumed that Venice is the ideal place for a honeymoon. This is a grave error. To live in Venice or even to visit it means that you fall in love with the city itself. There is nothing left over in your heart for anyone else.”
Music or love, choose up sides. All that matters is that you allow one of the most beautiful places in the world to charm and beguile you… perhaps with the help of these luggage labels all about the Venice Lido.
