Stepping back in time to an early Venice recreated with CGI, the series explores the sacking of Constantinople and the Venice of Casanova, Napoleon, Byron and Mussolini. The recreations and dramatisations in each episode are enriched by insights from charismatic aristocrat, architect and historian Francesco da Mosto. His family has lived in Venice for over a thousand years and, far from having that sinking feeling, he believes passionately in the future of this miraculous city.
