Midcoast Senior College's "Winter Wisdom" - Venice: Where Did the Stones Come From? 12:15 PM Curtis Memorial Library Morrell Room , Brunswick

Venice: Where Did the Stones Come From? Travelers to Venice, Italy usually think about water and light, but what about the stone? In Maine we have land-based quarries and also quarry islands. Unlike Maine, Venice seems to be a city of islands and lagoons, wood and mud, without quarries or good sources of stone. Thus begins a search for the sources of stone for Venice, and discovery of many side trails and stories. Gary Lawless has a B.A. from Colby College and honorary Ph.D. from USM in Humane Letters.
