Excursion to Venice!
Participants of the Ezra Pound Seminar and Writing Workshop at Brunnenburg will spend three days and three nights in Venice, Italy, where they will take in the scenic sights of the city and the lagoon, as well as visit spots that inspired some of Ezra Pound's greatest work.
Here, they will listen to and discuss Pound’s poetry in streets and doorways, on bridges, by canals, inside churches, and at museums. They will also see where Pound lived and be able to visit his grave at San Michele Cemetery.
For the Venice trip, the program will cover the cost of train travel from Brunnenburg to Venice, hotel accommodations (including breakfast), most museum fees, and a vaporetto (boat) pass. Participants will be responsible for additional meals, personal expenses, and souvenirs.
