From San Servolo to Amalfiis a diaristic account of the Venice Biennale by Lü Peng, author, curator and the world's foremost expert in Chinese art. Peng arrived at San Servolo on May 24, 2009 to oversee preparations for the Biennale exhibition he had co-curated entitled A Gift to Marco Polo. He kept a daily journal recording his work on the exhibition and the beauty of Venice and its surroundings. Peng's joy in the occasion and the city is evident throughout: "I open the window and see the sea outside. The rising sun casts a beam of light onto a white building on a small island in the distance. This is the material world. Thinking of words such as moved or touched, I feel that such morning landscape tend to make me use them more easily than art does." Interspersed throughout From San Servolo to Amalfiare philosophical musings and perceptive commentary on the Biennale.
