Hope you had a lovely holiday season, let’s start the new year with some interesting news.
Some of you have already contacted me for tours in Venice next summer, but before that, here’s a list of things you may find interesting while coming to Venice NOW.
Carnival starts January 27th and ends February 13th 2018. For the official info on all the events organised in Venice, you can visit this link – there is also a booking app for hotels/accomodation.
As regards exhibitions and things to do this year, don’t forget to visit the masterpieces by the one and only Tintoretto, nickname for the Venetian artist Jacopo Robusti, born in Venice 500 years ago. A Tintoretto tour can be part of your next agenda.
The International Biennale will be held as usual in May, and will be dedicated to ARCHITECTURE. It will take place from May 26th to November 25th 2018, at the Giardini, the Arsenale and other venues around the city. The chosen theme is Freespace, as Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara state “Freespace describes a generosity of spirit and a sense of humanity at the core of architecture’s agenda, focusing on the quality of space itself.”
After the successful TREASURES FROM THE WRECK OF THE UNBELIEVABLE exhibition by Damien Hirst at Palazzo Grassi, the next show will be centred on the German contemporary artist Albert Oelhen, while at Punta della Dogana, there will be a collective show on the representation of the self, entitled Dancing with myself, from the Sixties to nowadays.
This is just a short account of all the places you may want to visit during your next trip to Venice. For any other info regarding walks and other possible tours, please do not hesitate to contact me privately.
I look forward to seeing you soon in Venice, enjoy and have fun!
