Humorous Masterpiece by Architect Askin Ozcan, 'THE SECOND VENICE'!

By Askin Ozcan (Mentor)

An incredible, humorous masterpiece by Architect Askin Ozcan, which became Nr. 1 among the top rated books in ITALY MAGAZINE, can bring you substantial profits.

"THE SECOND VENICE" is the ludicrous story of a new, imaginary Venice, built by the consortium of Pshht Cola and McBigBite, beside the real Venice, after the Italian Government`s passing a law to limit the number of tourists to Venice, to protect this lovely City from pollution and destruction.

"THE SECOND VENICE" is a masterpiece in humor. It describes how this artificial replica of Venice comes into existence and the life in it.

In "THE SECOND VENICE ", all the important buildings in the real Venice have been faked as well as the canals, gondolas and the vaporettos. The paintings in the museums are the fake replicas of their originals.

On Piazza San Marco, a mosaic of a McBigBite hamburger sits proudly, and a huge Pshht Cola bottle stands like a Brancusi sculpture in front of the railway station Santa Cola!

Stories of thieves, spies, congresses of every kind, mix with the lively crowds of tourists from every corner of the world, who choose to visit THE SECOND VENICE for its lower prices! There is even a "Fake Films Festival" which takes place in it, every year, where the worst films from the world compete for a prize! The author has not neglected to write ten short scripts for ten films, competing in this festival!

Writer`s Digest has commented on the book, as "a humorous piece which doesn`t give a chance to the reader to be bored" and congratulates the author for his sense of humor and knowledge of Venice and architecture!
