#64 A magnet and a scenery

• A gondolier stands in front of Doge's Palace waiting for customers to take onboard his black boat; next to him, a tourist gets the ten millionth souvenir snapshot with the famous building in the background as eternal testimony of his visit to Venice.
The "building" in the background used to be, in a remote past, the site where were discussed and taken most important decisions for Venice: wars, peaces, elections, laws, prosecutions.
Now it does his duty attracting millions each year and offering to this multitude his majestic beauty for unique portraits.
