A question... if I may? #2

I have recently discovered Yann Tiersen's awesome soundtrack to the film "Amelie".
It says "Paris" to me.
It says "France" and "French"... and reminds me of my holiday last year.
This year I am heading to Lido di Jesolo, near Venice, in Italy... and was wondering if anyone could recommend a piece of music... say, a soundtrack score... that says "Venice" and "Italy" to them?
Any ideas?

Fennesz has an album called 'Venice', which is kind of an ambient, electronic experimental album. Might be something you would like (it's available at

For the Italian feel I love a lot of Ennio Morricone - 'Cinema Paradiso' and 'Baaria' soundtracks come to mind, but they are both a Sicilian setting, rather than Venice.

The soundtrack to Cinema Paradiso--some of Ennio Morricone's most lovely work;
