Það sem verður gert

ear about the stories about cross-dressing in cat masks and Rolandina, the first transgender we know about in Italy. Explore the places gay cruised from middle ages to the Grand Tour, enjoying the tolerant, laid-back and easy-going city attitude today
Take a trip over the centuries through the history of the LGBTQ community in Venice, which is as labyrinthine as the city’s convoluted system of canals. Travel back to Middle Ages, when the practice of sodomy by gay or bisexual men was deemed a sin, and punished heavily by local authorities. Learn about the history of Rolandina, a transgender who was burned at stake in 1354, as several other men of all social statuses, from commoners to nobles, have being condemned for their same-sex relations in the following centuries. Travel as educated European did in the 17th, when Venice became one of the homosexual tourism destinations of the Grand Tour in 17th century. Learn how Death in Venice by Thomas Mann and The Desire and pursuit of the Whole by Frederick Rolfe made the city a place of homosexual imagery during Belle Epoque. Learn about the fascist attempt to “clean up” the city and follow the locations of a music video shot in Venice with a real lion and a gay-icon as Madonna, checking out how is gay life nowadays in the floating city.

I spent half my life away from Venice: studying in the „Italian Far East“, getting „germanised" in Bochum and Göttingen, enjoying the post-Olympic vibe in Turin, getting drunk in the worst bars in Moscow, following the silk road in Central Asia, clubbing in Berlin and pretending to be a professional manager in a multinational corporation in Africa and Middle East.
All of this to realize that there is no place like home, especially if home is Venice!
Now, as a licensed your leader & nature and interpretive guide and a member of the LGBT community in town, I am ready to share my true love for the city, my passion for sustainable tourism and few tips about the Venice I like as a local.

Staðsetning

We will pay respect to a gay Italian poet and to a gay Venetian historian, visit a a church whose arcades witnessed frequent sodomite activities in middle ages, stroll around a red light district of the middle ages, learn about "gnaghe" cross dressing with cat masks, hear the story of Rolandina Roncaglia, the first trans person we know of in Italy and see where a gay pop-icon like Madonna shot his video Like a Virgin through Venice canals

Valerio gave us a private tour and we had the benefit of his great knowledge about the history of Venice and his his language skills. We‘d recommend tours by Valerio to everyone who is interested in Venice beyond the touristy slopes.

Discovering Venice with Valerio was the best way I could imagine to get to know the city. Because of him, Venice became a little bit ours. Thank you so much, this will forver stay in my heart!

This was really a lovely tour to see a side of Venice that few people would know-the historical gay side of Venice. Plus we got to see areas of real Venetian life in the process. A great introduction to niche aspects of Venetian history.
