The idea of the Committee is “to promote tourism that follow unusual paths which go beyond the visit of the historic centre of Venice, to the surrounding areas full of history and traditions”.
In this perspective, according to the president Zoppas “Venissa is a great place to Venice Expo 2015″.
Venissa recreated the vineyards of Serenessima in what was the environment of ancient monastery on the island of Mazzorbo, near Burano.
To welcome Matthew Zoppas in Mazzorbo, Gianluca Bisol, of the historical family of Prosecco, which recovered an ancient walled vineyard, where was planted the Dorona, historical vine native white grape typically Venetian, cultivated since the fifteenth century and lost over the centuries. This result is the culmination of the work started in 2002 and which saw the first harvest in September 2010.
It is through the high level of accommodation of Venissa that the Expo visitors can experience the flavour of ancient Venice.
If Goethe had to redo his “Journey to Italy” instead of adventures and misadventures and the description of multiple visual, olfactory and auditory like singing gondoliers in Venice, he would describe these places.
