As you stroll over the marble floors past the large pillars towards the Grand Canal of Venice, you just might be greeted by a tall slow-moving tree. Its limbs and branches slowly moving along the halls, sometimes seeming to cling to walls, other times moving swiftly across and down the walkways, weaving a visual trail of greenery in its wake.
