Following in the Footsteps of Hemingway
Would you like to explore Ernest Hemingway's favourite spots? You can in Caorle! The American author born in Oak Park, Illinois, on 21st July 1899 and Nobel Prize winner for Literature in 1954, fell in love with Italy and Veneto in particular; he loved spending his days in San Gaetano, a small village of the Caorle lagoon.
He arrived here for the first time in the winter of 1948, as a guest of Baron Raimondo Nanuk Franchetti, with whom he shared a passion for hunting and a deep friendship. Hemingway dedicated some of the most beautiful pages of his book "Across the River and Into the Trees" published in 1950 to the lagoon; in it, he also tells the story of the love of the protagonist for Renata, a noble 20-year-old Venetian lady.
