Giudecca, Venice, Italy. October, 2012

Ding, dong. "Avon calling.” I still recall that commercial jingle from my youth for the door-to-door cosmetics and beauty supply sales outlet. And I remember Dianne Wiest’s excellent delivery of the line as she enters the scary house in Edward Scissorhands. Imagine her challenge upon approaching this roster of doorbells on a palazzo on the island of Giudecca. Poor Miss Wiest, having to press all those bells, pronounce all those mellifluous Venetian names.
