How does a community swept along in the wake of Venice's arrogant rise to power, react to the pressures and expectations of life in our technological society? The islands of Burano, Torcello, San Francesco del Deserto and Santa Christina, which form a group in the northern stretches of the lagoon, have met this challenge in differents ways. Shirley Guiton describes these small and lesser known, and less visited, islands and how they cope with modern life.
