13th April 2019, Venice Night Trail hosted 3500 runners sharing passion for run and sightsee in the beauty of Venice Here we are with another great edition of what is already a classic race: the Venice Night Trail 2019 has just finished and we are ready to give you our personal review of that beautiful night! The number of runners for the 2019 edition has been limited to 3500 participants to ensure the best running experience and grant an acceptable impact on the fragile context of the city of Venice. The bibs ran out since months, testifying the great appeal of running in Venice. The maritime station has been the hub for the race, with the running village open from 3pm to allow the runners to collect bibs and running packs with much comfort. Shuttle buses were at disposition for all the racers to reach the starting point from San Giuliano Park / Mestre in less than 15 minutes. The running village Even if most of the runners decided to come pretty late for the registration activities, like just 1 hour in advance to the starting time, the organization did a great job and by 8:30pm the first grid started to be filled with runners. Top runners had, as it is common with high numbers of participants, a favour line in front of all; the following grid was reserved to the competitive racers and a second grid to non competitive runners plus, at their back, nordic walkers. Few recommendations to enjoy the run and respect Venice and it is time to switch the frontal light on, play the Italian national anthem, make the countdown and fire the starting gun! To provide the best and safest experience to all runners the same procedure has been replicated for the non competitive run

The count-down has started! It's 4 months to the 33rd edition of the Huawei Venicemarathon that will be held on Sunday October 28th. This is not just a simple marathon. The event is also considered a 'meeting point' for thousands of athletes coming from all over the world. It is well known that the city of Venice has always been at a crossroads of people coming both from East and West. Its history dates back to the sixth century and once Venice wasn't just a city in a larger state: it was one of the greatest trading powers in Europe. It was located at the “finish line” of the Silk Road trade route and consequently became a cosmopolitan city, a true melting pot. During the middle ages crusades, Venice was one of the wealthiest towns, and the most overcrowded Mediterranean port. We may say that it was the first multi-cultural town of Europe, where you could easily run into northern European merchants, Slaves, Greeks and Byzantines seamen. The need to affirm its own cultural and religious variety persuaded numerous foreign communities emigrated to Venice to build here their own real and specific place of worship, giving life to an harmonious twist of architectural forms and artistic traditions. Just as a mark of the Venetian melting pot of the time, we still have in Venice some buildings or areas like the Fondaco dei Turchi (warehouse of the Turkish), the Fondaco dei Tedeschi (warehouse of the Germans), the church of San Giorgio dei Greci (the greek-orthodox church), Riva degli Schiavoni (the shore of the Slaves), the Isola di San Giorgio degli Armeni (the island of St George of the Armenians, currently one of the most important centers of armenian culture in the world), the Ghetto ebraico (the Jewish ghetto). We can relive the stages of this history that had seen rise through centuries different religious communities and got developed in

The city of Jesolo has just hosted thousands of runners during the MHM 2018 on a new race course that highlighted the modern city beach face! Once Jesolo made the beach and anonymous tourism its main business card, until it became aware that it could become something more evolved and attractive: a real "destination". The upgrading of the city started fifteen years ago, in 1997, with the masterplan by Kenzo Tange. This was based on the concept of the tower, to reduce the consumption of soil and to enhance the views towards the horizon of the sea. Three towers already built are considered small landmarks, precise points where it is easy to make an appointment, visible from afar, territorial. They host panoramic, well-equipped and elegantly finished apartments. The tower designed by Gonçalo Byrne is 25 stories high, smooth, glazed, colored and with deep holes; the one by Carlos Ferrater with its 22 floors is pointed, whitish and with many loggias and sliding walls; the one originally designed by Valter Tronchin, later modified by Aurelio Galfetti, is lower with its fifteen floors and is characterized by rounded corners and shades of blue. The towers are not in the first row on the beach, and with the sea they just maintain a Platonic relationship, devoid of any physicality. The city at their feet is an horizontal plinth whose commercial function and connection with the beach is consequently reinforced. This is what Richard Meier tries to do, in his two projects realized and close between each other, white and with a naval look: a nice C –shape of apartments set around a swimming pool and a ten-story block. Certainly you will be able to recognize some of these modern architectures if you decide to visit Jesolo! It is obvious that the redevelopment is changing
