meeting Venice: our ” H-Art !”

Jul 19, 2019 | art, arts and crafts, famous characters, painting | 0 comments

A beautiful trip is of course unique ! What makes the difference are the people you meet !

Exploring museums, palaces, exhibitions, collections,… And the people who were part of it : architects, musicians, craftsmen… famous and non-.

Pleasure and culture blending to your own taste, to the best of the city..

Best Venice Guides are, on their behalf, the cream of official guides here : they have been through the highest level of specific exams, in order to represent knowledge in historical and artistic matters on the spot.

But also, just because they are geographically residents, the Best Venice Guides have a specificity you might not have thought of !..

Up and down theses bridges and through hidden places, they are part of its living cloth. More than anyone else, they can bring you to its thousand faces, to explore its unicity, the one you are looking for !

It is a Treasure Hunt !

Here is an example : 2018 celebrated Il Tintoretto.

A Best Venice Guide brought you to understand his work and life, throughout a hundred stories and details of his work ; bringing you then right up to the further Cannaregio district, where he lived, went to church – La Madonna dell’Orto -, and worked in his Bottega with his beloved daughter…

Now is the best :

The Bottega of Tintoretto is still alive ! A privileged space, part of his own life, hundreds of years ago: – his spirit is still floating around us, from past to present !

In that Bottega, today, is working with true heart and spirit, one of the inheritors of the Venetian stamping tradition, born in the time of the dawn of a true knowledge industry nearby the time of Tintoretto’s birth.

The Bottega participated in the same 2018 to the Architecture Biennale of Venice, as testimony of this specific tradition of an antique communication and information network.

Here, you can find yourself on this path of continuity, learning about engraving and stamping, with old machineries, saved from forgotten by Art and Literature.

Along with contemporary Art Editors – Damocles for an example -, editing even contemporary artists of the international level as Ai Wei Wei or referenced Shakespeare …

In the tracks of masters, along with our master of today.

Playing and experimenting, you might discover you want more time ! Maybe you will have to come back; but there, all of a sudden, we feel a bit further part of the Venetian life. 

Through moving lights of these canals, spirits are born and grow, in the multicolour abilities we may have.
