ABOUT THE ART
There is so much anticipation for the upcoming The Hobbit Movies, starting christmas 2012. We will see a mysterious world, with small and tall people, with hobbits, elves, wizards - and dwarves.
But what do the dwarve have to do wit Venice. To find out, we have to go the La Serenissima, to Venice, Italy.
Are you surprised? We were, when we heard the story first. As you know, Venice is famous for it glass production - and it was even more famous many hundred years ago. It brought enormous wealth and power into the city. But you cannot get the materials you need for the glass production from the lagoon, where Venice resides. You need to go to the Mountain, to get manganic and other minerals. And here come very small people into play. They are very seasoned. They know, how a mountain should be shaped, to find the materials, they need. They are tiny people, so they can get into the deep, narrow and small tunnels, digged into the mountains - and they are mainly working for the Serenissima. These small people are very sought and soon their knowledge and wealth are getting part of history and tales. The tales are getting bigger, the stories more mysterious and with the diminishing power and strength of Venice, so do the then called dwarves.
