The gondola is like a dreamboat. No matter where we are in the world, it takes us immediately to our postcard image of Venice where beautiful masks stand on balconies and the gondoliers sing forever. Even at the time of Casanova, tourists from all over Europe were taken on rides through the canals and listened in wonder to the »canzoni da battello«. IL POMO D'ORO revive some of the most beautiful gondolier songs from old Venetian collections - and charismatic Vincenzo Capezzuto not only sings them with breathtaking melodiousness, he also turns them into charming comedic miniatures. The gondola departs from the grand Italian architectural fantasy that is the Belvedere - and the next stop is Venice!
In cooperation with Supporters Club Pfingstberg e.V.
