Gallery Hotel

Ezra Pound stayed for two years in the 1960s at the Hotel alla Salute and Allen Ginsberg found a house not far away. They used to meet in the hotel garden.
It was here that the famous conversation of 28th October 1967 with Ginsberg, Peter Russell and Michael Reck took place, in which Pound made clear his deep regret for his earlier anti-semitism, saying: "... but my worst mistake was the stupid suburban anti-Semitic prejudice, all along that spoiled everything ... I found after seventy years that I was not a lunatic but a moron ... I should have been able to do better ..." (recorded by Michael Reck and published in The Evergreen Review the following year).
Peggy Guggenheim also stayed at the hotel; her contemporary art gallery is close by at Palazzo Venier dei Leoni.
