The game consists of twenty photos to identify and let me say, it's very challenging. But fun!
Right now, I know twelve of them and am still trying to figure out the other eight. I didn't know all of them right off the bat, I had to do some research. Some helpful hints: a few of the answers can be found on other pages of the ALoV website (check out the "Cast in Stone" page, and also "Hidden Corners" and the sestiere pages linked at the bottom). Two of the answers are somewhere on my blog.
Question #15 is driving me crazy. I know that spot, I've been there, and I just can't place where it is!
ALoV will post the answers on March 25, and there may be more questions coming later on this year.
In other Venice news, Carnivale is happening right now (February 13 - 23) and it might be a good time to keep an eye on the Piazza San Marco webcam (it's not working today but hopefully it will come back on soon).
Venice Daily Photo is posting some scenes from the celebrations too.
A major exhibition of internationally renowned artists who have chosen to portray the noble circus art of the clown.
The noble art?!
Shannon posted an interesting article on Slow Talk, Venetians take Carnivale Back to the Streets, and Colleen posted "Top Ten Budget Eats in Venice." The only one of the ten that I've been to is Al Nono Risorto, a very hip pizzeria in Santa Croce - it's a great place. Several of the others sound pretty good.
