Hemingway Adventure

Noventa di Piave

Michael Palin - Hemingway AdventureEast of Venice the landscape patterns change. Dead straight roads, canals, power cables and the fresh-ploughed furrows of the fields bisect, criss-cross and converge on each other like lines on a Mondrian painting.

We put up at a hotel in Noventa di Piave, a tiny town with the second tallest bell tower in the Véneto outside St Mark’s Square, a pizzeria called ‘Smack!’ and a smoky café where the old men gather to play cards. Eat good plain food washed down with jugs of prosecco, the local sparkling white wine, in a busy local restaurant.

Later, before bed, read a few more pages of A Farewell to Arms with a keener pleasure than usual, knowing that I am now only one and a half miles from the tiny town of Fossalta, the place where the story was born.
