This is a special package that Quiiky created just for the Atlantis Group
Join this group to discover two of the most beautiful cities in Italy.
Venice, the city you would like to see at least one in your life.
Today you are going to do our tour following the steps of the German writer Thomas Mann and his novel Death in Venice, set in a sultry and cholera Venice, where the writer Gustav Von Aschenbach, at the top of his career meets Tadzio -a boy of deep beauty-. The strictness and respectability of the old writer will give up to passion.
Then, you are going to visit Des Bains hotel, the one in which Thomas Mann met his young polish love.
Along the centuries the gay history of Venice has been in constant evolution. At the third century homosexuals in Venice were severely punished, in fact several of the principal cities on the Italian peninsular notably Florence, Sienna and Rome gained reputations as infected with “beastly sodomy”.
In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the early Venetian Republic also participated actively in the campaign to eradicate homosexuals, at that time Leonardo Da Vinci and Benvenuto Cellini were both twice arrested and jailed for sodomy. Gradually the fines reduced, by 1800, they were almost nominal.
Venice became an attraction and a large and overtly gay community arrived in the city, a large number of persons imaged that Venice was the reincarnation of antiquity and its traditions. One of the most well-known events in Venice, the Carnival, became a place where everything was possible.
