The Campaign For A Living Venice was started in September 2016 by technician and translator Paul Rosenberg, and internationally acclaimed author Allan Gurganus, whose work includes Local Souls and Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All. Paul and Allan, who both live in North Carolina, came together to launch this campaign through a shared love for the city, and a strong desire to do something in support of Venice.

Paul continues to produce articles for the site with Allan’s ongoing and warm support.
