An islet made of five minor islets with fourth canals connected by several bridges.
An islet of lined colorful fishermen houses, rainbow-like tiny lanes and alleys,
with outside, drying laundry on the Mediterranean sun as lively theatrical decoration

An islet of vivid simplicity as a contrast to nearby monumental aristocratic Venice,
with an energetic atmosphere of the small tight-knit Italian community and coherently expressive Italian
culture “in situ“.
