Jamais ville n'a suscité autant d'attrait et de curiosité que Venise. Il fallait tout le expertise de Philippe Sollers pour nous enchanter une fois encore.

" Venise est une grande aventure historique. Elle peut être aussi une ardour individuelle. C'est le cas ici. Dans ce titre : Dictionnaire amoureux de Venise, je souligne le mot amoureux. Il ne s'agit évidemment pas d'un "guide" (il y en a d'excellents), mais d'une expérience personnelle liée à ma vie d'écrivain. Je suis arrivé là très jeune, j'ai passé chaque année, printemps et automne, beaucoup de temps à marcher, naviguer, regarder, respirer, dormir et m'émerveiller. Venise, voilà son mystery, est un amplificateur. Si vous êtes heureux, vous le serez dix fois plus, malheureux, cent fois davantage. Tout dépend de votre disposition intérieure et de votre rapport à l'amour. L'amour ? Oui, et dans tous les sens : anges et libertinage, structure, peinture, musique, roman, poésie, mais aussi air, pierre, eau, étoiles. Nature et tradition enfin à égalité. Venise n'est pas un musée, mais une création constante. Si vous échappez aux clichés, au tourisme, aux bavardages ; si vous avez réussi à être vraiment clandestin ici, alors vous savez ce que le mot paradis veut dire. Le monde se précipite vers le chaos, l. a. violence, l. a. terreur, los angeles pornographie, le calcul aveugle, los angeles marchandisation à tout va ? Mais non, voyez, écoutez, lisez : voici le lieu magique et futur dont tous les artistes et les esprits libres témoignent. "
