Venice and its testimonies can be found at the Loison Museum, for example a series of ancient postcards that have in common the magic of a city, unique in the world.
Venice has always enchanted everyone: it is the most admired by tourists, the most wrote by poets, the most desired by lovers. This is demonstrated by the postcards kept in the Loison Museum, one in particular shows two little newlyweds embraced on a gondola, on a romantic starry night.
What is really amazing is the declaration of love written on the back, sent in November 1927 by the anonymous lover to his beloved to celebrate their honeymoon in Venice.
Rome, November 1st 1927
do you see the two married lovers who are leaving by gondola, in the enchantment of a starry night for a wonderful lunar walk on the mysterious lagoon? Do you see the joy that bathes in Mimmi’s eyes and the smile that illuminates her rosy cheeks, while Pipetto leans over her, suggesting some mischief, with his head on Mimm’s and his arm around her waist?
This is a forerunner of the happy days ahead: Venice will be part of our honeymoon, isn’t it?
… with a soul full of joy
