Venetian art and culture

There are not enough words to define the art and culture of Venice.

Since the beginning, the city was a geographical and strategic meeting point for many merchants coming from all those countries Venetians had commercial relationships with. The city became cosmopolitan and enthusiastic to welcome new forms of foreign art and different cultures.

During the ten centuries of its history there was a constant artistic and cultural enrichment.

This richness stands out everywhere in Venice still nowadays: museums, theatres, churches, palazzos, workshops of ancient jobs, old cafes, plenty of details at every single corner.

The city is not only famous because of its ancient art, but also for the Venice Biennale which was the first exhibit of contemporary art ever in history, organized for the first time in 1895.

The base of the Venetian culture was, and still is, multi-ethnical and you can feel it everywhere. Several foreign communities were allowed to establish in the city, building their houses and places of worship.

Typographies printed books in Latin, Greek and Italian. Aldo Manuzio was the most important printer during the Renaissance who invented the Italic font that we use still nowadays.

During Live in Venice Week we will visit some historical and cultural places together, including some less known museums and art galleries.
