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.
Ancient inscriptions in Venice: only the most attentive visitor will spot the hundreds of small bass-relieves and inscriptions inserted in the buildings’ masonry. Among the most ancient one we can count a certain number of epigraphs in Latin language: they have always been an enigma for historians and archaeologists.
Ever since the Discalced Carmelites settled in the place they still inhabit in Venice, they enjoyed a garden that remains unique and precious to this day. It is unique due to the large quantity of medical herbs grown there and from the point of view of design, which is symbolic, allegorical and “mystical”.
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.
