A whimsical city inspired by Venice. "The ancient built Valdrada on the shores of a lake, / with houses all verandas one above the other, /and high streets whose railed parapets look out over the water. / Thus the traveler, arriving, sees two cities: / one erect above the lake, and the other reflected, upside down. / Nothing exist or happens in the one Valdrada that / the other Valdrada does not repeat ...."Signed in pencil.
