Under a fake Italian sky...

It's like something out of a William Gibson novel. Three resort hotels all designed to look like a different part of Italy. The Venetian, Venice. Caesar's Palace, Rome. The Bellagio, Lake Como.

Enter their shopping malls, and it's into a maze of fake streets and tromp l'oeil skies. Lights take you through a day in an hour, projecting moons and stars on the infinite blue ceilings.

Inside the Forum at Caesar's Palace a projected moon looks down...

A fake sky and a fake Trevi Fountain. No fake coins to throw in, though...

Bell towers over canals in a plastic Venice.

"Just one fake gondola, in a fake Italy!" (out of tune, out of O Sole Mio)
