Also known as Torcello Cathedral, as the basilica is on the Venetian island of the same name. With architecture that reflects its Venetian- Byzantine heritage, it is one of the most ancient sacred monuments of the Veneto. It is slated for restoration by Save Venice, an American nonprofit organisation dedicated to preserving the city’s heritage.

Marfa is a place that’s not quite like any other; it was home to the late American minimalist master Donald Judd, and it has a slightly wacky, off-beat vibe. Marfa Myths captures the spirit of both.
