It is 1576 and Venice is in chaos, ravaged by plague and overrun by crime.
In the midst of the anarchy we find those brave souls who have chosen not to flee the city. Titian, most celebrated of Venetian painters, his health failing badly. Sebastiano, a gondolier who is the eyes and ears of the corrupted and crumbling city. And Tullia, the most notorious courtesan of the age, who must fight to retain her status as well as her worldly possessions.
In the present day, the echoes of what happened centuries earlier still ripple as the lives of ordinary people as far distant as London and New York are touched by the legacy of old Venice…
‘Travelling across time and place, this compelling intrigue captures the beauty of several Venices and the essence of Titian the city’s most scandalous genius.’
Francesco Da Mosto
