Venice, Violin, and Vivaldi

On Saturday tourists were treated to the spectacle of an enormous violin floating down the canals of Venice carrying a live string quartet. The cruising instrument, “Noah’s Violin,” was created by artist Livio De Marchi, as a way of “bringing a message of hope.” De Marchi is known in Venice for his surreal boats, including his whimsical wooden water Ferrari. You can catch the Vivaldi concert in the video below.

NB: If the video does not play, please click the short url at the bottom of your email version of TBTP.
