Villa Ada, Lido di Venezia, mid-November 1930. The Sinigaglias often go to their house on the Lido, even in the autumn. The animals are there, the girls and boys enjoy themselves. A cat is particularly loved and petted, but there are also other farmyard animals to greet in the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood boys, perhaps a little envious, watch from behind the fences, while Pierino Mainardi, the Catholic uncle who married Aunt Ester, films with his 9.5 mm camera. Between one vicissitude of life and another, the Sinigaglias, even when they no longer owned the house, would continue for decades to pay a visit when they returned to Venice every year to visit relatives at the cemetery. Amongst their memories of Jews partly from Mantua and partly from Venice transplanted to Bologna is this film, celebrating the 1930s at the Venice Lido: nothing of the villa can be seen, but those November days will somehow remain vivid in the memory.
