Fresh update on "venice" discussed on Boring Books for Bedtime

"Says that he who thinks new favors will cause great personages to forget old injuries deceives himself. Julius did not rest until he had ruined chesser. It was to Julius the second that Machiavelli was sent in fifteen o six. When the pontiff was commencing his Enterprise Against Bologna. which he brought to a successful issue as he did many of his other adventures owing chiefly his impetuous character. It is in reference to Pope Julius that Machiavelli moralizes on the resemblance between fortune and women, and conclude that it is the bold rather than the cautious man that will win and hold them both. It is impossible to follow here the varying fortunes of the Italian states which in fifteen o seven or controlled, by France, Spain and Germany with results that have lasted to our day. We are concerned with those events and with the three great actors in them. So far only as they impinge on the personality of Machiavelli. He had several meetings with Louis, the twelfth of France and his estimate of that monarchs character has already been alluded to. Machiavelli has painted Ferdinand of John as the man who accomplished great things under the cloak of religion. But who in reality had no mercy faith humanity or integrity. And who had he allowed himself to be influenced by such motives would have been ruined. The Emperor Maximilian was one of the most interesting men of the age. And his character has been drawn by many hands. But machiavelli who was an envoy at his court in fifteen o seven to fifteen o eight reveals the secret of his many failures when he describes him as a secretive man without force of character. Ignoring the human agencies necessary to carry his schemes into effect. and never insisting on the fulfilment of his wishes. The remaining years of Machiavelli official career more filled with offense arising out of the League of Cambrai made in fifteen o eight. Between the three. Great. European. Powers already mentioned and the Pope with the object of crushing the Venetian republic. This result was obtained in the battle of file when Venice lost in one day, all that she had one in eight hundred years. Florence. Headed difficult part to play during these events. complicatedness they were by the feud which broke out between the Pope and the French. Because friendship with France had dictated the entire policy of the. Republic. When in fifteen eleven. Julius the second finally formed the Holy League against France. And with the assistance of the Swiss drove the French out of Italy. Florence Sleigh, at the mercy of the Pope and had to submit to his terms. One of which was that the MEDICI should be restored. The return of the MEDICI to Florence on the first of September fifteen twelve. And the consequent to fall of the republic.

From The City To The Megalopolis

"It's amazing to think that. In the nineteenth century about three percent of humanity lived in cities and today. That number is fifty percent, and it's growing rapidly. We live in the age of the Megalopolis. We're going to talk about that now with Dr, Salvatori satis Dr set. This is an emeritus professor of the history of classical art and archaeology at the school normality superiore in Pisa in Italy. He's an archaeologist and art historian. He's the chairman of the Louvre Museum. Scientific Council his the author of several books on art. Art History and he's known as the conscience of Italy for his role in spot, leading the neglect of it all national cultural heritage. His book is if Venice dies, and it's a look, not only at in the struggles, Venison the twenty first century, but at the increasing urbanisation of civilization general doctor says thanks for joining us. Thank you for inviting me. Can you talk about if finished is? How much of it is about Venice? And how much of it is it about the changing urban landscape across the planet? Well my intention in writing. This book was to focus on Venice. In order to make people meditate about what's going on on on a global scale about what I would call the shape the form of the city Savannah's. Sample account that example, contrasting some of the most disturbing. Of Urbanization in our current world end, it is quite dramatic. What's going on in your book? You explain there are fifteen megalopolis. That have over twenty million people is the advent of these massive cities twenty million people cities people have to live somewhere is is that a good thing or a bad thing? Why does it concern you well? I'm concerned about the quality of life. Those people because although this organization may look something that happens naturally, it is also prompted by economic forces. It is a concentration of workforce. which is not necessarily living in good conditions in order to create profit for a very low number of people, so it's the usual formula ninety nine percent, the best one percent, the megalopolis is a consequence of a complication of the world, the general commodification of the world that includes to an increasing extent human beings. This is just a very efficient thing for the elites to have a concentration of workforce where people who will be able to work cheaper and produce more by being right there at the center of production. Is that what? What you're saying, produce more and also by more become consumers, because workers are simultaneously consumer, so there is a a bishop's or two, if you so wish seal between being workers and consumers and I, think that there are two your which are combined, and normally one is made. Opera is the big over-centralisation to the other one is the verticalisation of AF- architecture. May Boca Use a? It's an example Chung Ching in China which had the six hundred thousand people in the nineteen thirty s and now thirty four million people living in it. I talked to contrast this with a different. Format Orbis or shape of the city. A form of the city in which that is some sort of harmony of balance between the body of the citizen and the body of the city where the citizen doesn't feel The one thing I'm saying is that it is good that we presser diversity in urban form and preserving diversity means among other things saving and saving the other historical see also because there is in even more. More disturbing feature of urban farming cities taking shape in in our time, and that is the fact that wide ancient cities. Historical CDs had a boundary around the city in the case of Venice Lagoon, case of other cities, the walls around the city now the boundaries around the boundaries of the city are being gradually substituted by boundaries within the city which has boundaries between the gentrified areas. For. The Hey and the have nots. You can see that in Paris very well. This can impact is. Also in Rome or in Milan dimension, Italian cities, the gated communities are increasingly frequent all around the world, but the gated communities are for those who are wealthy or relatively wealthy, while the other people are condemned to live in favelas. Zeal or in in be don't be like this aim French. I'm just thinking of Paris. I was just in Paris with a group. And I was explaining how they protect the center of Paris where everything is the months heart, scale you know six or eight story tall monster building, so you can see the domes, and you can see the spires, and you can see the Eiffel Tower and then right when you get to the periphery. Periphery this big boulevard that circles the city outside of that. It's just no-holds-barred, and it's like keeping the Cadillac Bay outside of that periphery. It's forced of skyscrapers within that you've got the elegance of the classic people friendly city that is in a sense, a gated community, because it's unaffordable for lot of people, and they end up outside a town in the rougher downtrodden neighborhoods. This is what's going on. Your description is absolutely perfect I think. But this involves a separation with inside, which is socially potentially very dangerous for the future. which is not precisely what I would call democracy.

You don't come home and tell all your friends and family about the time that everything perfectly. When you're out traveling the world, you tell them about the time that your bus broke down or you had your cameras stolen or something crazy happened. Those always make the best stories, and we found that there with social media and instagram and everything. There was this skew trend towards the glamorous side of travel where everything is picture perfect and you're on a gorgeous beach. No one else is there and everything. It just looks wonderful, but everyone who's traveled knows that there's the other side of that where it's. You're hiking down to this beach in your sweaty and there's probably a million people there and somebody's trying to. To sell you, you know like that's just the real side of traveling, so we wanted to bring that the forefront and just chat with people about that and tell stories of when things go wrong in the road, because that's more interesting in our opinion,

Google Earth video tours of LA

"So we've all seen a lot of these zoom meetings where we Show you different places. But what about a Google Earth meeting Los Angeles tourism has a twist on? Take you to places you haven't been how about via Google Earth. Well Bill cars who's the VP of digital marketing for Los Angeles tourism has put together a few of these. Well first of all. Just explain to people what a Google Earth tour is all about. I we all know about going onto google earth and looking up you know location. So what what? A street address looks like and things like that. But what is the actual show on Google Earth? What's it like? Sure so? Google Earth gives you the opportunity to develop a presentation in a project. And you can customize that project within the platform while you're GONNA do is sign by Google. Anybody can customize it it's just a matter of the content of you're putting into it it allows you to choose different views satellite hybrid not view. And then you can add the locations but not only that you're also adding in video clips if you allow for audio zone and you can add photography as well as descriptions and you can keep this presentation around for days after months after can live in perpetuity so We're really loving what we're seeing. Google Earth Tours. How did you come up with the idea because again? It's just not something that is done a lot. It's usually two people talking on a Webcam Blah Blah Blah talking heads. Yes Oh internally. The the Tourism Board is small but mighty team we come up with some really interesting ideas and we chatted and we started going through it and we saw that in the presentation mode with worth it allows you to fly through different locations so as we go from point. B. We feel like we're virtually going to these places and it really is that tourism vibe Safer example we wanted to take somebody to Cathy's corner which is that area from the dancing in la La land overlooking the valley at that magical camera night magic hour and when you get there. You have the shots from the locations. That that that Robert Folks interest douses provided us in addition to the description of the location or talking through how they got access to that particular location working with parking wrecks in the organ in the city to get access to these places. So yeah that's how he came out using Google Earth and so the first one was La la land locations and then you have a second one coming out on Friday tell everybody about it so with National Travel and tourism week taking place right now We thought there's no better place to focus on that showcases the spirit of travel then the Los Angeles International Airport. Lax is an iconic airport throughout the world and they've got a flight path museum at LAX. That not a lot of people know about this hidden gem newseum in when I stumbled across a Google Earth virtual tour of museum. I was astounded and I showed the curator's doses museum what was possible by zoom in Google Earth and They were floored so on Friday at twelve thirty PM. Tst We're going to be doing a virtual tour to flight patterns and taking you through history of flight even and you'll minefield at lax and to what we see today at the airport. So we've got a couple of others. Zoos coming up Everything that we're doing right now is focused on virtual experiences. But we're hoping that sooner than later as I said before there's no substitute for travel people be able to experience these things in real life but We're GONNA be doing a couple more coming up. We've got a facebook live with the opera and this weekend. We're doing a mother's Day special with an sons chocolate tears at their chocolate factor in the arts district. Well that's great because see's candies sold out the needs good alternatives. Tell us about magic hour. Every night you guys to a livestream of a sunset from a different location or is it usually Venice. Because I've seen a lot of Venice. Yeah no we were stationed at Hotel Irwin in Venice. Beach and You know to give somebody amazing. Webcam you have to really. I'm have the right equipment in place so We have Yes large camera station with the capture card feeding into OB software that allows us to broadcast broadcasts not only on Youtube but on facebook and instagram to simultaneously. So we're reaching Oliver Audiences. What's been the response to it? It's been outstanding We've reached over a million and a half people already people from all over the world. I mean anecdotally.

Yeah after these virtual experiences. There's no better time to plan for your next trip. So Armchair travel is definitely the wave of the presence of the president but Hopefully people will get out of the armchair and be able to travel again soon.

Crystal King tells us about one of history’s best-selling cookbooks

"You've just written. A book called the chefs secret about the first celebrity chef tyler male Skopje. Who who was Skopje? Skopje was a man who worked for several different cardinals and popes during the renaissance and he found fame because he wrote pretty much. What was really the essential first cookbook that modern people in kitchens and homes could look at and use as a cookbook as we understand it today and it has over a thousand recipes in it and it was published in fifteen seventy and it was one of the best selling cookbooks for the next two centuries. I wish I'd write a book. That was the best rate for the next. Two centuries won't be around Let's get to the food spices This medieval Europe spices were in vogue at the time. So what kind of spices would they use a kitchen like this? So interestingly enough sugar is the biggest thing that was involved in not necessarily on the spice side of things but over nine hundred of the recipes in the cookbook actually have sugar in them and they would put sugar on everything. Like fried eggs has orange juice and sugar on them. Did you try that? I did not try that odd. I The that is the thing I think that is the most striking of the foods at this time is that the flavor combinations are very strange to us. You describe one feast slices Parmesan Olives from Tivoli assaulted. Buffalo Tongue. Served with lemon soup of cheese and egg yolks so some of the ingredients are common. The sauce is a sauce of ground. Almonds currants hard boiled eggs chicken livers. So you're right. They they had a very different Palate than we do. They would create pies for example that would have layers of cheese and then cinnamon and then cavs eyeballs and then Just you just layer all of these strange ingredients together. They really had cavs eyeballs. Oh they used every part of the animal and In certain regions that would have been a delicacy. Actually how do you research the Sixteenth Century? What are the kinds of records? The records of what people bought for the kitchens the the market lists. What other kinds of materials? Could you get hold up to do the research? Yeah a lot of Italian history is still an Italian so a lot of what I researched was actually in the original Italian. But there's a lot of really interesting information we have They took big inventories of their kitchens of the food and the wine that went through the house and so we can see a lot from that also. There was letters that were left behind. One thing that I find really fascinating is that the the gifted food regularly Isabela de Este would send a cabbage to her brother with a recipe on how to make it for example. Not Not a very close loved brother. Yes apparently average but they cultivated. They looked at growing food and fruits and vegetables as a hobby. A pastime that they were passionate about and this was a time of exploration in the area food and so you would send food and sausages and cheeses from one place to another on a regular basis pounds and pounds of fish. Sometimes we're giving gifts Christina's you mentioned those all the time. Are they similar to what we think of? Crisanto is today in. What is a Christodoulos? Start with her pie and yes. They're very similar. Skopje has recipes for simple single cross pies as well as pies that. Have beautiful elaborate tops? Very elaborate pies in these banquets could actually have live animals in them that you would cut open and they birds would fly out for example sometimes pies medieval times. You wouldn't eat the crust because the crossed wouldn't have been palatable flower water right. It was just to hold the food and cook the food differently. Whereas in this period of time you're starting to see flaky crusts and this is where you start to see. Pumpkin and Apple Pie and quince pies and peach and Cherry and pies's we know them today. I have a little experience going back into the nineteenth century American cookbooks and it's sort of hard to translate recipes from that period to the modern times because the ingredients were different right. I mean sugar is not the same kind of sugar. We have today for example. Did you try to cook some of those Skopje recipes? And if so. Did you have problems of translating them? The recipes in Skopje. Cookbook are actually pretty straightforward I found that the majority of the ingredients could be easily sourced at least on the Internet. So did you end up with any recipes in your repertoire. Or these were all speech should stay in the sixteenth century. Oh No these recipes start to become you can see where the foundation of Italian food comes today. there's a. Pumpkin cheesecake pie across data. That I would definitely make again in super easy to make. It's something extremely delicious. Pumpkin cheesecake came from the sixteenth century sixties. No it's not actually when you read the recipe you start to make it. It's got a cream cheese which I interpreted as cream cheese It was probably something not quite the same but similar in texture record of cheese. It has The spices that we're very familiar with mostly cinnamon. The pumpkin could very well have been pumpkin from the new world at that period of time or at least a squash and it's like a Pumpkin cheesecake pie but not as fluffy as we would have in our pies today but delicious. So you get a sense you know. We always think now the twenty first century so modern people were so old fashioned hundreds of years ago but five hundred years ago if you read this book and they were quite modern. So do you get a sense that the food world has really moved on and gotten better or it's just different. I think or what's worse. Maybe it's a little bit of both. I think it's worse in some ways in the sense that we look at regional cooking and and organic cooking as a trend in some ways whereas that's what you did and Skopje took great care in the cookbook to explain the foods from different regions and he had great respect for foods in different places. He was very obsessed with seasonal ingredients and was interested in bringing in flavours from different areas whereas an Italian cooking today. Everything is very very regional if you go to Rome. You're not necessarily going to get the same food that you're going to get in Bologna or in Venice so I think that there's there was a shift in Italian cooking very definitely but I think that he he started us all out and it's different but we can learn a lot. I think by looking back at him. Chris. Thank you very much The chef secret the story of Bartolomeo Skopje. Part fiction and part history. Thank you thank

"The professor Ross. Let's acknowledge that the very existence of Venice shows repeatedly the triumph of human engineering. Right I mean this is a city that was first when it was built it was built on the water using in many millions of wooden piles and kind of an an a an act of audacity. I would say thousand years ago that that that the Venetian said we. We can do this and they did it. And then we've had subsequent you know in the centuries following other large-scale engineering projects to help save Venice. Sylvia had mentioned earlier here that rivers have been diverted out of the lagoon so that it doesn't those rivers don't poor You know all sorts of contaminants and chemicals into the lagoon so the idea idea. That engineering can save Venice. Deeply embedded into the city's history. I want to acknowledge that but given the multiple all factors right now most specifically climate change that are acting on on Venice here. Do you still think A flood barrier solution is the right one. I believe it is. I think the flood barrier willing fact work of for a significant amount of time. We have talked knowledge that if syllable rise continuous and this is not just strictly limited to that radic it. It will be a concern. All across the world is so events were able to protect the lagoon and he'll it'll be appointed out. He's not just Venice appropriately for several decades of considerable length. There's time to think of solutions. But at that point if the worst happens Let's face it Manhattan of South Florida New Orlands We got problems all over the world To deal with with that condition. There's no doubt about that. And that's why this is. So vitally important. The question then becomes is ten billion euros for some of flood barriers that might by Venice a couple of decades cades. Is that the best and smartest use of those ten billion euros to achieve the longest term protection for the city every coastal city. You just mentioned has to have Bob do that. Same cost benefit analysis. Are there other ways to spend ten billion euros to protect Venice for a longer period of time. In my opinion I don't have have any other solution that will guarantee a safe and banished forever. If you if that's what you're implying this solution that would work. And as you stated earlier in fact.

"Best intentions. You want to keep up with the impeachment hearings but maybe you have a job. There will be hours of testimony from witnesses in impeachment impeachment inquiry this week and the NPR politics podcast will be there every afternoon to keep you up to date on all the key moments. Listen daily this is point. I'm making a trucker bardy. Were talking this hour about historic flooding in Venice about climate change and about saving one of the world's most beloved love cities I'm joined today by Sylvia Pohjola. She's with us from Rome. She's senior European correspondent for NPR. Toto Berga Morosi also joins. He's in Venice. He's director of the Venetian Heritage Foundation which restores buildings and artworks in Venice. and Mr Bergamo. Rosie Lemme ask you. You were talking about how there had been some efforts in years past sort of isolate parts of Saint Mark's basilica from water to keep the water out but of course water fines away. Hey especially as it rises and rises. I just wonder are there. Efforts or thinking Underway that perhaps regarding San Marco specifically we do parts of it needs to be moved. I mean can this building be saved in the long run. Well you know the problem is you. Can't you can't take some mark. Mazzetti can put some other places. I mean it would never happen and you cannot raise the level of the floor because all Jackie tetreault design would change. And and so. It's not it's not really policy but I think we have to continue to work in this way but just you know We have to make that that that project finish. I mean the very very You know everybody talk about this molded take this this Watergate there and at CDC. Before I mean it's it's ninety percent of the work has been done in too many years and a lot of money these appeared and it was very addictive between different political tarts but in any case we have to be pragmatic Mikic and the war. Problematic is not something that we use a lot in my country unfortunately So we have to be matic and just finish that because they spent already seven medians of seven billions sorry billions of euro on the project and And there is like I plan to finish every year and a half so I hope that now would that kind of be catastrophe than have last week they who they can and they could accelerate and and and and this project earlier just to prevent any other. You know. We can't have another floss like this. And I'm I'm I was born. Nineteen sixty seven so the big flood of ninety sixty six. You know when I grow up I always heard about the floods of sixty six and yet fact and the damage and how bad it was. But I mean it's unbelievable that after fifty three years. We're still doc with the same. Well Silvia let me turn back to you here because toto mentioned that perhaps this latest historic flooding might kick in a sense ends of pragmatism to get those dams fixed. I mean based on folks that you've spoken to in the past week or so. Is that sense of urgency now amongst the the Italian political bureaucracy. Well you know the project they just As total just said that their plan they have said that they will have it completed by by the end of two thousand twenty one. That's you know two years from now which is You know a long time. The other question people are raising it was pro it was projected that the the design was done. Something like At the end of the nineties early two thousands and it's not clear whether they did at that time time you know. I don't know what the predictions were of rising sea levels at the time. Many people are worried that it's going to be they're not going to be sufficient to to really we keep the tides Away the other issue is that environmentalists are very worried that even once it's functioning the floodgates will have to be open a lot of the time time which means that the lagoon gets cut off from the from the ocean from the and that would alter the whole the whole ecosystem that has been really building building vanderbilt and nurtured by by human beings for free. You know fifteen hundred years. It's a marvel of this this combination of human human in nature working together the video Venetian lagoon. which is a huge lagoon and It's a very delicate ecosystem ecosystem. And there's this concern that even wants if they do function which nobody is really sure that they will. I'm sorry about my skepticism. But I think I'm reflecting the the sense of most Venetians. I heard only skepticism. I didn't hear much enthusiasm on the part of anybody. They're so tired and resentful towards also politicians. And what they've been hearing for so long so it's It's not clear that even once if they do work you know what impact it will have on the lagoon on the ecosystem. There's there's really it's begun on their well Toto Bergamo Rosie one last question for you as as a Venetian you know better than any of us around the rest of the world that I mean. The one of the painful ironies here is that Venice is water. Water is Venice. This is a city. That's since it's founding on on those many many millions of piles at all. Those buildings sit on has been intricately bound to water and yet here it is water that is spelling the overall perhaps the overall doom for Venice I mean. Do you think that let me just ask. You can be saved in the long run. Well if we use like this I don't think so also because I mean it's this is why I mean. Sometimes because catastrophe can provoke something at the end something good I mean reaction So and my my concern is not about only about the big flats than we have a few days ago. But it's the way then the city is run and they not only under the last administration of our our little Local Donald Trump. Then we have a mayor of Venice but that is not only about that. It's more about years I I mean it's years of neglect that Position I mean the people. They don't decide they don't then it's still runs like nineteen seventy when we were like when we have other time maximum six or seven medium by year of tourists this year we had thirty meeting even presence and with still have the same kind of a of a of organization. So it's not you know. Van It if they don't take series series important from the governmental realm decision about how this should be run It's GonNa be like that. CD of these and they were just for cheap tourist and of course wilder everywhere and this is something like make make me read. It suffered so much because you know I dedicate my life to try to save the most beautiful building of the museum. The Churches Collection Make Exhibition. It'd be some big books. S- caught our shape and the result is that at the end. Everybody wants to use. Then it's all of everybody just to make their own little money and there is no big vision about what is going to be in twenty years. If there's a Venice in twenty years yeah well total Burgum Alrosa Director of the Venetian Heritage Foundation which resort restores and preserves artworks in Venice joining us from Venice. Italy today thank you so much for being with us. Thank you okay. So let's dig in a lot deeper into what we've talked about already this hour and that is that question of of Floodwater protection and this massive engineering project. that is hoping to be the savior of the city of Venice so joining us now now for more on that as Rafael brass he's with us from Atlanta Georgia. He's professor in the School of Civil and environmental engineering and at the School of Earth and atmospheric sciences at Georgia Tech. He also worked on the flood barrier project in Venice from nineteen ninety. Five to two thousand thirteen working with the consortium. That's developing the flood ludd barrier project. He headed a group of experts overseeing the barriers development professor bras. Welcome to point. Thank you very much pleasure so I smelled like to actually just sort of give people much more detailed sense as to what we're talking about when we're talking about these submersible flood barriers right so so take us to the those three inlets On the edge of the Venetian lagoon. Where the water? From the Adriatic Sea flushes in and out every day. Those are the sites it's where these mosaic dams are being built. Is that right. That is correct With the idea is to protect the Laguna Venison general not just Vannes although although that certainly the main subject it's a fifty kilometer thirty kilometer fifty kilometer long Lagoon Buddy history. Well defined inlets if you can separate those. Let's see from the lagoon. During periods of flooding then We would have protection of the loan and the the the design of the mosaic barriers themselves. Right they they're supposed. They're designed to sit underwater flat right during regular title events So that water can come in and out of the lagoon and then when a high tide or a particularly high tide is predicted. Those bears are supposed store rise up and close off the lagoon. Is that right. That is correct they. They were designed to effectively seat on the water and going going to operation only when needed and the reason for that is to allow Traffic in and out of the inlets and also so for over for aesthetic reasons. I think that there was a requirement or regionally for designs. That would be US less intrusive as it's possible And Flood Berries like this. Are we've seen in other places. I mean the Thames Barrier in London is a is a good example. It stays open. Most of the times of the Thames River can flow into the north. See but it can close To protect London win with unusually high tide events There so it's not it's not a And out of the ordinary idea here but why has it taken so long to to construct a mosaic beer. You heard Sylvia report that it's not done yet. It might be done in two years but it's been a long time. What's the hold up? Well that's unfortunate done. I'm not sure I know all answers both As you know the barrier earlier while so originally intended to take on the order between eight and ten years to build if I recall correctly our targeted date that point and Wesson died two thousand twelve two thousand eleven two thousand. Twelve delays Hata Care Oh largely because of financing financing issues since then There were corruption Issues that arose for political corruption corruption in the in in the unit that was doing it. that tool sort of action so but unfortunately those actions seem to have implied the the stopping of the the effort to finish the barriers. Were which were largely finish By the twentieth thirteen Sylvia. Do you have of a d ever thought on that. I mean does. It seem still kind of optimistic that the the Italians might finish this project on the time. They've stated well. It is an Italian problem. Generally generally it's not just in Venice that Then delays and again usually mostly due to corruption and not not not no more than anything else but no I mean I have no idea I mean they say another two years Adler brings it to eighteen years if it is completed by the end uh-huh and who knows how much more money it's true they've been there's also in Italy when there's changes of political governments instead of having sort of continuity when one government makes certain decision the the next government government comes in and starts blocking it making COMP COMP- complications money is suspended so there's that it certainly that is also one reason for delay away but there's also tremendous suspicion of where all summit all this money has gone and why it is the psalms have increased the cost of increased so much over this period And who will see its video. Mo- you know. Yesterday I was. I visited the island of police phillies three now which is one of the barrier island. There's Lido and the three inlets are at the top of leader. The bottom of Lido and then there's police three to kill John the mainland on. And there's a very thin very thin strips of Barrier Islands Lido and Palestine piteously. The last week suffered tremendous damage. It's mainly its inhabitants are mostly fishermen and I went to the Along the port there and it's just like a row of Electrical appliances refrigerators washing machines absolutely destroyed by the waters. They all were all the homes were flooded. The fishermen have this initiatives unique thing that they have in Venice Lagoon. They have these you see when you go in by boat you'll see often these wooden platforms that you're never really sure that she'll like little sheds and what they are. Are there storage areas for fishermen where they keep their nets and their whatever their equipments in tools and one fisherman. Several fishermen told me there's we're totally destroyed. One was like two hundred square meters shed. He lost everything. All the fishermen have lost all their all their their nets everything because the combination also what happened last week was the combination of an extremely high tide. Plus a very very strong wind.

"Welcome to the PODCAST. I'm San Francisco Cisco Chronicle Pop Culture Critic Peter Lab here with Chronicle Movie Critic Mick LaSalle Welcome Sir. Thank you very much because you with your yeah welcome back from Venice. I I always know you're in Venice because I really great movies arrival. I got it chapter two this year. I've been doing panels Venice on and off since two thousand six but I don't go every year. 'cause a lot of times. I mean it's it's. It's a little bit like a busman's. It's holiday you know and and so it I find myself. I I go on vacation and then I go to Venice and next next thing I know I'm rushing to see movies and I start feeling like hey. I can do this at home. It seems like you see more movies in Venice than when you're here sometimes well in a way yeah that is true. Although I also the other thing that makes me kind of unsuited to film festivals in a way although I do going there is that there's some people they're able to sit down and watch four movies in a row. Some of the can do five in a row and I can't I can't I can't do it. I I'd say I mean three would be really pushing it and most days just to I just not only that but after three I don't like anything I start thinking that the movies bad and then it's not it's just because it's just too much so anyway yes. I've been doing it since off since two thousand six. I probably do it about two thirds of the time well. We're very happy to have you back. I would've loved to hear your take on Rambo Four.

"We have timmy shallow may as <hes> prince hal fifteenth century monarch with with a attractive east london hipster bolcom and then in the blue corner we have the dauphin of france played by robert pattinson with possibly probably the greatest funny frenchaccent in the history of cinema and a kind of almost cobain ish bleach blonde bob. Do you think that's i coming up of <hes> of the film well. I'm just gonna go right in here and say this is a film. It's really easy to make fun of. I mean i happen to the get slightly. Aware of the fact that it can can present is quite silly when you've got mannered fifteenth century language but i think that it succeeds on a lot of levels i loved it. The castle young i read something <hes> where david michel said had you know people died really young in medieval times we imagine kings is being these kind of older stately men but really king henry the fifth died. He was like thirty five or something. I think so you know when you're looking at these guys. They are just like these young impulsive guys in charge of these vast armies and the other thing that i love about it is how tactile it is. I think the production design the costumes it looks kind of naturalistic in dirty and real and the set piece of the film is the battle of austrian court art and i think that's probably one of my favorite parts like it's the narrative kind of hinges on it kind of builds up to it and it's all kind of set in this muddy field. It's been rainy night and the english are really outnumbered by the dolphins army and they manage to use the mud to their tactical advantage. Two men are grappling appling on the ground and you can't really tell them apart or see anything aside from people drowning in and bleeding in it and it's just got this really awful tactile feel to it. I was watching this in <hes> ever thinking back to the days of my history degree and studying schinkel and the primary sources and talking about all the <hes> the battle tactics six there. I actually think i wrote an essay on long. Bows versus the french crossbows and wide wide along those were so much better because she had the range it kind of goes into some of that those battle tactic details but for me i gotta say i thought shallow maywood was a bit of a bust as a regent. His performance just didn't work. It felt very kind of showy and maybe he was trying a little bit too hard. Maybe so focused too heavily on maintaining his slightly pushing english accent and i totally get you with the aesthetic side and i think the battle scene is interesting and certainly that kind of mass huddle they get into where it's just this of overhead overhead shot worries where the frame is completely filled with bodies for yeah. It just takes a long time to get there and and and a lot of going through this off historical epic cliche ashamed as well such as the big battle speech and the treacherous side players and the the arguments against the evil cleric and it's. I think that's the thing that i didn't do it for me. I wish i had seen the film that robert pattinson was in or thought he was in rather than the film the timothy shallan may he was in which is the film that david michaud does tried to make which is a question of po faced serious historical battle film. I think you were saying yesterday. That use may be a bit more humor in the whole thing yeah. I think there are moments. There's sort of part where the cleric that you mentioned is talking at length about some quite dull political matter and chaumet cuts him off. I can't remember what the line is. It cuts him off and quite a contemporary way as if to say i'm bored and kind of in a way sort of non wink to the audience because going through the procedural roll internal politics of the court is a little bit dull and definitely the film picks up momentum secondhand sure but yeah in terms of humor also i mean the patents in performance is almost camp..

"There's one sequence with a very high think obscure reference to planet the apes which we let's not talk about but there is an overall sense in the film that he's collecting together. These very subtle name checks to a law of classic sci fi films as you say two thousand and one and <hes> solarz tucholsky film would be another one. I thought that his whole gambit about looking at the moon in in the near future and you know assuming that capitalism will very much follow us into outer space as we call it is and build of moon becoming like disneyworld and they're being tourist attractions fractions and they're being all sorts of corporate fast food chains. I that was a very canny decision on his part and one of my favorite that's i think and how did you find find brad pitt because i mean he is on a bit of a roll this year i mean people are loving him on the back of his cliff booth in tarantino's once upon a time in hollywood ali would how does this compare got it so different but it just shows his range as an actor and <hes> anybody that has been sleeping on brad pitt for whatever reason shouldn't be anymore anymore but it definitely shows that he has the ability to be kind of a great deadpan comic actor as well as a proper leading man in an incredibly serious role like it's very hard even think of a joke in astra. Can you think of one. I can't think of a joke. No there are some little ironies in there. I think some of the references are a bit cheeky cheeky. Be no no. There's definitely no big laughs in the cinema as there has been in many of the other films we've seen i'm not a massive james gray fan i mean i i haven't really like any of his films and even though he does have quite an avid following amongst sniffles and film dudes and stuff like that and i have to say i kind of was coming to the film with trepidation thinking oh god is this gonna be another thing that i loved the idea of it and the prospect of it but the reality is is kind of boring and indulgent and fair plates have james gray. He has the ambition he has immense ambition and he has this vision vision for everything he makes. It doesn't connect with me often but this time absolutely did and i think it's a really moving and emotional oceano and emotive film helped by the school by max richter as well. Everything works in a really nice visual emotional union. I i saw and <hes> yeah brad pitt's performance where he is this kind of steely eyed guy who just lets these tears roll occasionally. It really got to me. Do you think it's too much of recon of film. No i mean i'm here for brad. Pitt's manley tears absolutely and i think he's fantastic..

"The actors was one of the things i was looking forward to and was heavily kind of <hes>. I was not as pointed. I mean adam driver is now now made a bit of a cerebral store for himself as the kind of almost indie darling he e- just taking off working with all these great modern tours and does great work with most of the time i i would say this not being an exception. I thought it was really interesting to see scarlett johansson in a film like this because i've almost almost come to expect her now doing big hollywood scifi movies like ghost in the shell or doing her thing. How did you feel about seeing scar drawback in a meaty dramatic role. It was nice to see her. Be a human kind of come down to earth. You know wash your face 'cause she's been crying in in her eyes are all puffy and she's perfectly capable so it's a shame that she hasn't really had any of those roles recently. If i had a complaint about the film i guess i would say that in the latter are half the focus does shift slightly more to adam driver's perspective in the marriage and i'd like to have a little bit more from her from her point of view to add some plot details. It's more of a setup because it doesn't really have a plot in the traditional sense. There's this high rolling new york couple. He's a theater director. She is his kind of lead actress and they have a young son and it transpired that she has ambitions elsewhere and wants to work in tv and wants to direct herself but he sees her as just part of his machine and his theater company and <hes> some animosity that has arisen from that and <hes> it splits the family out there originally based in new york this'll american seat of theater and <hes> scarlett johansson character then move to l._a..

"Off. I think about her not just her actually but in fact the way she's filmed as well he was quite male gaze which seems to be trying to make up for a certain lack of soul trina that she has yeah and i think seabrook's quite sultry and i don't really get that from kristen stewart. I know that sounds quite harsh but i kind of agree. There is a lot of shots of her looking being slightly anguished wearing a very very very low cut see through negligee. Maybe that was how seeburg dressed in private but the camera does linger on it for a very long time just to add it into the context of the festival is the first film we've seen i believe is played out of competition and and i think generally a rule films that might receive a little bit harsh treatment from the press gallery of moved out of the main competition and into out-of-competition slots just to sort of almost prepares you for the type of film. You're gonna see it's it's more mainstream. It's not vying for any big big prize so it's a different type of launch pad. Do you think it was worth. Screening is in how competition film yeah i mean i think it had its merit. Certainly i think i feel like her. Story is not widely known in the should listen to like you must remember this podcast or you're really into hollywood history and the idea that she was really being punished <unk> by this right-wing moralistic force in the f._b._i. At a time when there's so much backlash against youth culture and counterculture in sexual revolution so much of it seems to be wrapped up in like they're seeing her a slot. They're seeing her as somebody. That's cheated on her husband. Had you know interracial relationship <hes> and i think that some of the ideas around that were interesting to say but the fact that it tries to kind of habits cake and eat it by doing that and and being really male gaze with her bodies eh trade off. Let's wiscon- minds back if we are able to to hold twenty four hours now of movies so back to yesterday so that that would have been the first day of the festival that we have been here for they really decided to kick things off in high style with two massive films you have james gray's ad astra which is his kind of very opulent slightly experimental sifi opus starring brad pitt and you also have no bound backs marriage story which is his very very delicate but funny and tragic dissection of marriage but also study of the differences between los angeles and new york. Let's kick things off with marriage story. What were your thoughts. I think it might have been one of my films. The year i think it's kind of major from him and adam driver and scott hanson are incredible credible enact the understanding of intimate relationships and this kind of tenderness between them even unexpected moments even when things become increasingly brutal brutal in terms of their divorce. I think really kind of hits a nerve and i think it's really beautiful sad funny phil that's funny because when we were speaking beforehand and you could read about the subject matter your anticipation was maybe a little bit less than the actual results we of seeing the film what what was it that was was making it not seem like that kind of tasty prospect for you a few things i think i've always liked bomba but never unreservedly loved in a like a a super passionate way partly because i are worried that it would be you know two hours slog about miserable relationship. I should have known better with bomba because he he's always pretty light fingered in his approach and <hes> so much incidental humor that even saddest moments. You're there's a hopefulness i think to the film but so partly it was him partly it was the in fact that was about a marriage falling apart certainly not for the actors..

"Called Benedict Evans, and what he was saying was that with most of my detect companies historically that have had dominance and lost it. They didn't really lose it because they got attacked head on allow room by lost it because they became irrelevant ally. Venice Venice was a major shipping port, but basically people found alternative shipping routes and all of a sudden Venice was no longer really relevant in the world. It didn't matter anymore. And that's that was his comparison with a lot of the major tech companies, the IBM the Microsoft's these kind of big companies that were the dominant players and now probably a lot less, and it's an interesting analogy. I think when we talk about the spa business because I don't see anybody taking the spa business head on. But I do see us becoming more and more irrelevant. And I say that based on the numbers based on the amount of guests that we're getting through our doors. So I think as we look at the. Business. We need to think more about I think many people in the spa business. I waiting for a conflict there saying we'll nobody's fighting head on. So therefore, we're k-. But I think we need to be mindful that becoming relevant is just as dangerous. It's a more slow and painful death, perhaps maybe not even painful, maybe just slow, but it still potentially a death nonetheless. So I think we need to be doing all that we possibly can to stay relevant in a changing world. Because if you don't the world will change around you, and they'll just find another route must like they did with Venice just thought what do you think living?
