Italy in Arts: Charles Aznavour – How Sad Venice Can Be

2011 is the cross-cultural year between Russia and the two European countries of Italy and Spain. So, on Los Cuadernos de Julia I have already started to share insights into representation of Italy in Russian painting, and there will be more on Spain, and hopefully I am also able to show how Russia and Russians were seen by both Italians and Spaniards.

However, I also decided to extend the representation of Italy and Spain beyond Russia, so the first example actually comes from the singer who has been living in France and is primarily known as a French performer, but who is loved and well-famous in Russia. Charles Aznavour, How Sad Venice Can Be.
