OLTRE IL GIARDINOVenice, Italy
Oltre Il Giardino, a Hotel di Charme—which once belonged to Alma Mahler, the composer's widow—is an oasis in the center of Venice.
“I arrived yesterday. Venice! I live in my house. My house built from nothing, a sum of money that never worried me…if I sold it now I would gain a hundred thousand lira, a sum with five zeros. In exchange though, my universe would vanish and I would only have a few zeros more." — Alma Mahler, February 1928
