Amina Persa


- Who lives in there ?

- The gentry

- I see nobody around

- The gentry stay indoors

- In Venice for the first time ?

- No no

I was here as a child

during the summer

- It's a wonderful city

- Venice is Venice

- Annetta.

- Yes,madam

See to the master's case.

- Your case.

- It's light.

I'll see to it.

- Nice trip?

- Yes. Thanks.

You must be tired.

You've grown.

What a fine lad you've become.

- How are your parents?

- They send their best.

This is your room.

Want to wash your hands?

- Trains are quite dirty.

- Give me your overcoat.

- I'll be in the dining room.

- All right, Auntie.

This blasted window

is always open

Latin and maths are out.

Dad's trade is not for me.

Even mum said

"Try painting.You're gifted.

Then we'll see"

- Are you gifted?

- Well...

As a child I was praised

for my drawing of Tarzan

- No

- I'll have some more.

God bless you.

- May I finish it?

- Yes. Don't be so formal.

My head!

Always at this time.

Join me in the other room

when you're ready


Come along

I'll show you around.

This is Uncle's study.

He always eats out.

He meets important guests,

some from abroad.

- What is he?

- Engineer with the Gas Company.

A very important position.

I won't recognise him

after so long.

- Is that him?

- No.His Father,Mr Stolz.

A peculiar man.

When the Italians took Venice.

he moved to Vienna.

"I'll breathe the air of the

Empire till the end" he said.

- So you met there.

- No. We met in Venice.

He sleeps there.

Let me show you the disused

part of the house.

This house has been

in my family for centuries.

We've only restored

a small part of it.

Everything's so costly today.

We'll wait for better times.

This was the theatre.

Look at the decay.

How terrible.

As a child I'd sing...

and dance here.


Watch your step.

- Where does this lead?

- Nowhere. A locked room.

Don't ever go up there.

that staircase is rotten.

Come on. Let's go.

This is my room.

He comes home late.

I'm a light sleeper.

It's my nerves.

Go to bed. You must be tired.

Good night.

Good night,Auntie.

Thank you for everything.

I thank you for bringing

your youth into this home.


- Can you find your way?

- Yes,Auntie.

- I can't find my room.

- It's right in front of you.

Thank you.

Good night

Good morning,son.

It's late.

- It's almost 7 0'clock

- Hello,Uncle.

If you're used to saying

your prayers,go ahead.

I'll look the other way.

Know how long you've slept?

Nine hours.

Plato said

"There's a beast in all of us

which comes out in our sleep"

Rule 1,have little sleep

I sleep 3 hours a night.

Here is all you need

to wash yourself

A touch old-fashioned,

I love the simple things of old.

Cold water and exercise

are good for you.

I do it every morning.

Naked by the window.

Do likewise.

We have 35 minutes to get

to Professor Sattin's school.

He's a poor painter.

And a hopeless teacher.

But it could help.Breakfast

and the boat are ready.

You may start breakfast.

I'll join you presently.

Hurry up.

What you see are the windows

of the old gaol.

Doge Faliero

And the Fornaretto

were first gaoled and then

executed in there.

That's Cimetta's house... the

first real murder after the war.

Her lover cut her up and threw

the pieces into the canals.

A little dirty,your Venice.


A humorist said "Venice is like

an old lady with bad breath."

A ghost that speaks at night

lives in that palace.

It says strange words

in an unknown language.

Some fauna!

This is a distant relative.

He's from the country.

I wonder if he's talented.
