san giacomo island

In the 1978 Giorgio and Maurizio Crovato, two young Venetian twins, travelled around all the  abandoned islands of the Venetian lagoon, with their Venetian rowing boat Sandolo, and made a book about them that was also a report of the bad condition of many islands.
The book had a huge success and was soon out of  print.

Now, 30 years later, a Middlesex publisher ( www.sanmarcopress.com ) has reprinted this book with the English translation, new photos of the islands and the foreword wrote by lady Frances Ashley Clarke.
The sales of the book will help the restoration of Lazzaretto Nuovo Island and the projects of Venice in Peril and Save Venice inc..
