    • Synopsis
    • The south of Brazil hosts an almost Italian city, 95% of residents are descendants of immigrants. The people there have married among themselves since colonization in 1891 until today, 123 years later. They speak a dialect that mixes archaic Italian and colloquial Portuguese and encourage children to stay in the city and continue their traditions. New Venice had a peaceful life until the day an original Venetian gondola arrived from Italy and renewed their Italian identity and transformed the place forever.
