Education

Ages 14 to 17
Have students discuss some of the artists or artistic styles mentioned in the film. Discuss the distinction the film makes a distinction between art that has an "enduring quality" vs. art that belongs in the "junk heaps of history." Can these ideas change from generation to generation? Can students name other cities that rely on their beauty or art to draw in tourists? What very contemporary problem is Venice facing today (rising water line)?
