“Veneziano dell’anno”

19 January, 2007

Every year a Venetian citizens committee called Associazione Settemari, award a prize: Veneziano dell’anno  to someone who has proved to dearly love Venice.
The 21st of January 2007, at the renown Fenice Theatre, Lady Frances Ashley Clarke will receive this prestigious recognition.  Her husband, the ex Britain Ambassador in Italy, Sir Henry Ashley Clarke (1903 -1994), established the foreign committees for the Venice salvation after the great flood of 1966.
Lady Frances has maintained his husband commitment with passion, enthusiasm and love for Venice.

Thanks Lady Frances.
