Re: Humours and moods

Antonia wondered what might have been happening with that young woman and the other two who were fussing around her, first a red-haired one, then one dark-haired after the first had returned to her place. She could see that the lecturer was a bit intrigued on the small disruption of his conference t...

Re: Wanderlust

One mention of business and Antonia’s interest was definitely picqued. ”Well, it depends what you want the parchment for. Because, as you see, the press machine is big enough to allow for eight newspaper pages head to head, so I couldn’t say we are running out of space. Or four posters, if this is w...

Re: The Invitations

The work could be done in three days. It wasn’t about inferior workmanship, but about the technological process in itself and what the small printing shop could realistically achieve, no matter how hard they would be going to work. She received the text and the layout of the invitation. It wasn’t bi...

Re: Promoting the young artists

The priest insisted that she would like San Giorgio. She knew she would. It was just a problem of time management. ”I am sure I would love to see that garden too,” she replied him. Maybe she’d find inspiration about something too, as it happened whenever she got out of her house and met interesting ...

Re: Just Dance (OPEN)

Antonia was surprised by the shot glasses trick too, and she laughed at Liao’s comment about men. ”Indeed.

Re: Common Interests

Antonia smiled, glad that the foreign lady enjoyed the tea. And indeed, the ankle had seen better days. ”This is obvious, and it is going to swell no matter what. I think, when you arrive home, you should rest the poor leg and sit with it up, or lie in bed for one –two days, to help it recover. Unti...

Re: Promoting the young artists

Antonia replied to the obviously interested priest: ”I don’t know his name, but he is a foreigner. Not French either, as my source speaks French and would have been able to remember a name which sounds a little familiar. English, German or some other nationality with unfamiliar sounding names.” She ...

Re: The Invitations

Antonia smiled at seeing the man step back and letting his master negotiate in French. She appreciated the lack of small talk too when business was concerned. So it was a lot of work to do quickly, but they could do them. And given that he wanted them done quickly, a tax for emergency would be also ...

Re: Promoting the young artists

As the Frenchman asked her about the remarkable events, she smiled. ”Well, besides this art exhibition, there is the upcoming visit of a Cardinal to Venice. The prices of cereals are on the rise. The pirates of Barbary had stricken again, a couple of weeks ago, a Venetian ship coming from the Far Ea...

Re: Promoting the young artists

Antonia had no bad feelings that the priest seemed not to have heard of her Gazzetta. There were a few in Venice, and hers was mostly sold in San Marco neighbourhood – well, and in Rialto, where anything could be sold and bought. ”Glad to meet you, Padre Agustin,” she curtsied, then she took notes, ...
