Episode Summary

The City as Architecture
Following the footsteps of 19th-century critic John Ruskin, Ackroyd examines several styles of Venetian architecture--now, as in Ruskin's time, mere ghosts of the city's glorious past. Nowhere does Venice's association with death become more palpable than on the island where poets and composers lie buried.
