Oculus Book Talk: If Venice Dies

When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM THURSDAY, APRIL 13

Where: At The Center   

Join us at the Center for Architecture on April 13 to hear Salvatore Settis discuss his latest book, If Venice Dies!

In If Venice Dies, a fiery blend of history and cultural analysis, Settis argues that “hit-and-run” visitors are turning landmark urban settings into shopping malls and theme parks. He warns that Western civilization’s prime achievements face impending ruin from mass tourism and global cultural homogenization. This is a passionate plea to secure the soul of Venice, written with consummate authority, wide-ranging erudition and élan.

Organized by: AIANY Oculus Committee

Price: Free for AIA members and students with a valid student ID, $10 for non-members.
