The Hidden Nest: Venice

Searching for John Berendt

John Berendt is one of my favorite writers. No trip to Venice would be complete without searching out the places he describes in his book The City of Falling Angels. One of my destinations was to find "The Hidden Nest"; home to the writer Ezra Pound and his lover Olga Rudge. This was not as easy as it sounds. The address is 252 Calle Querini near Rio Fornace canal on Dorsoduro. I strolled the main street next to the canal taking in the sights as I walked. The narrow Calle Querini was difficult to find. It was indeed hidden.

Read Berendt's book. It is rich, wonderful, and filled with stories about Venice and Venetians.
