Venice At The Dawn Of WW2

Dream of Venice shared this quaint look at Venice in 1940; a dark shadow was descending over Europe at that time, making for a scarily uncertain atmosphere for all Europeans, but the people in this seem charmed, alive, and blissfully unaware of the horrors in the offing for so many of their neighbors. ┬áThat so many of Italy’s treasures survived the first and second world wars is something pretty remarkable when you stop to think about it.
