• Short Summary

    Shots of Venice during a river festival.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Venice - en Fete - Every sea has its pearls, but the Adriatic has a special one - Venice - Brightest Pearl of Italy, according to the Venetians. So come with us now to the great Fete and eavesdrop on Venice really making 'whoopee'."

    Venice, Italy.

    Shots of crowds of people in St Mark's Square. Some feed and pet the pigeons.

    Several shots of boats and gondolas on the rivers around Venice. Crowds of people watch from the sides. Jets of water are sprayed over the river from the banks. View from one of the boats, looking up at a gondolier as he 'rows' furiously along. Other gondoliers seem to be taking part in a race. More shots of boats making their way along the river - most of the rowers are in traditional costume and some boats are decorated.
