The book has a lively and informative author website:
In The Venice Lido, Robin Saikia gives an affectionate and lyrical account of the Lido's history from its early days as a primitive settlement to its heyday as a glamorous beach resort, the setting for Death in Venice and the venue of the Venice Film Festival.
The Lido is currently undergoing a massive regeneration program funded by EST Capital in partnership with the Italian government.
Robin Saikia will be giving a talk about the Lido, past and present, at the Italian Cultural Institute in London this autumn.
Robin is available for interview and can be contacted by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact him if would like a review copy of the book and if you have further questions.
