I found this clever, eye catching, and memorable. What a great greeting for those heading to the casino. While I’m not a gambler, this ‘interactive’ ad let me know, in a remarkable way, that Venice has a place to gamble.

Casino di Venezia was built in 1638 and is the oldest gaming house in the world. In fact, Venice was once the Las Vegas of Europe.
