Locanda Montin in Venice - the setting of the famous film ‘Anonimo Veneziano'

The Montin Restaurant is located in the Dorsoduro district just steps from the Accademia bridge, the museum Ca' Rezzonico and St Mark's Square and is a typical Venetian inn, where you can eat the dishes of the traditional local cuisine and much more...

It is a historical restaurant in Venice visited by many famous people from the world of arts (the painter Amedeo Modigliani, the poet Erza Pound), politics (the ex-American president Jimmy Carter), entertainment (the violinist Uto Ughi, the Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger), but also teachers and students from the nearby Cà Foscari University. The famous poet Gabriele D'Annunzio celebrated its garden with pergola in the novel The Fire.

Some of the scenes from a film that quickly became a romantic cult movie were shot in the garden of the Montin Restaurant: Anonimo Veneziano (directed by Enrico Maria Salerno, with Florinda Bolkan and Toni Musante).

The film tells the story of the farewell between Henry, a seriously ill and dying musician, and Valeria, his ex-wife. The two, after years of separation and distance meet again  in Venice and found that they still love each other; but it is too late to go back and take a different course in their lives. It is a story of love and death that could not find a better place than the beautiful and melancholic Venice, which with all its beauty and its past glory is slowly sinking in the waters.
