Challenging and thrilling! What else but the Biennale? Every two years in Venice, this international contemporary visual art exhibition is a not to miss! Find out here some key information why the Biennale is worth visiting!
Venice is very rich in works of art: because of the special site where it was founded, these works have to be restored and cleaned accurately, most of all if they are made of Carrara marble, the marble of the best quality, used by Michelangelo for his masterpieces. Three statues made by Antonio Rizzo, a very important artist of the Renaissance period have just been restored by VENETIAN HERITAGE and the archistar Peter Marino.
Can we still find a peaceful place in Venice? Incredibly, just a stone’s throw from the chaos of the railway station and the surrounding bustle, the Discalced Carmelites offer an unimaginable and unexpected ‘sound’ of silence and beauty in their Church and vegetable garden.
The Compagnie della Calza, their history and customs will take us on a tour of Venice, to the heart of the ever-intriguing Carnival with its endless curiosities. Through the Compagnie’s stories, we will also uncover the flavours of many other Venetian festivities, some long-gone but some still very much alive today.
