One night I had a dream. I dreamed I was walking along the beach with you. Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to me, and the other to you. When the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life there was only one set of footprints. I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life. This really bothered me and I questioned you about it: "You said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me." And you replied: "My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
When first they came for the criminals,
I did not speak.
When they began to take the Jews,
When they fetched the people who were members of trade unions,
I did not speak.
When they took the Bible students,
Rounded up the homosexual,
Then they gathered up the immigrants and the gypsies,
I did not speak.
Eventually they came for me,
And there was no one left to speak.

The Palazzo Ducale is a symbol of Venice, seat of the Doge and the government and a representative of high Venetian culture.

Its interiors are superbly decorated by famous artists such as Titian, Veronese, Tiepolo, Tintoretto and Vittoria. For this reason, there are extraordinary tours to take inside: from the enormous halls of its political life to the precious rooms of the Doge's apartment, disturbing prisons and the luminous loggias overlooking the Piazza and the lagoon.
