What if you spent your next holidays in a country that no longer exists? Extinguished Countries is the first guidebook series about countries that no longer exist.
We start with the Republic of Venice, a journey that takes you to Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece and Cyprus. At a time when Europe is experiencing resurgent nationalism, these guidebooks propose an alternative point of view. Instead of following today’s borders, they take you on a journey through time and space to lost kingdoms, republics and empires, searching for what might unite us rather than what divides us.
This podcast takes you on the road from Bergamo to Venice, in the former Republic of Venice. The author of the book, Giovanni Vale, and the French radio journalist Julien Trambouze cycle across this extinguished country, telling stories from the past and the present, and giving useful tips to organize a visit. Prepare for a fresh, fun, and adventurous podcast on the road!
