It exists like “the stones of Venice,” those extolled by John Ruskin; it is a stone of Venice, attached to the name of this city in the memories of those who have visited this wonderful place, not as hurried tourists, but as those who have loved it. The Locanda Montin is not a restaurant, not a place to sleep, not a bar: it’s something dear to the heart of the Venetian and foreigner alike who know the real city, feel the fascination of its waters, understand the real Venetian. Along the pavement of Dorsoduro, at the beginning of the last century walked Modigliani; then came Ezra Pound and Carena, Cadorin,Guidi, Saetti, Lucchesi, De Luigi, Uto Ughi, Luigi Nono. President Carter loved to go there, and today come Robert De Niro, Brad Pitt, Paloma Picasso, Yoko Ono, Mike Jagger, David Bowie and Kinutani; it’s the place where lovers come, or people pressed for time; students and professors of the neighbouring Cà Foscari University.
