Mind that arriving to and departing from Venice could be more long than usual
Until the 29 October 2022
Venezia, Doge’s Palace – Sala dello Scrutinio
Andrea Emo: Questi scritti, quando verranno bruciati, daranno finalmente un po’ di luce (These writings, when burned, will finally cast a little light).
A highly discussed exhibition.
A series of paintings produced specially for the Palazzo Ducale in 2020 and 2021 are arranged in the space and magnificent setting of the Sala dello Scrutinio, engaging closely (and partially covering) with the thirty-three monumental paintings on the ceiling and with the heroic values expressed by the palace’s entire decorative scheme. The show underlines the role of contemporary art in reflecting on universal themes, transcending Venice and opening up to current philosophical perspectives.
Nevertheless the Palazzo Ducale always worth a visit!
21st of November
Festa della Salute – One of the most moving and best loved of all Venetian events. Every year on the 21st of November, Venetians make a pilgrimage to the plague church of Santa Maria Della Salute (St. Mary of Health) to pray to the Virgin Mary and to light candles. Gondoliers visit bringing their oars to be blessed. A pontoon bridge is built across the Grand Canal from Santa Maria del Giglio to the Salute and the huge doors of the church are opened to the city and its visitors

La Commedia Umana – Memento Mori by Ai Weiwei,
within the dramatic setting of Venice’s Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore
La Commedia Umana is an enormous hanging sculpture comprised of over 2,000 pieces of black glass handcrafted by the maestros of Berengo Studio in Murano. Measuring more than six metres wide and almost nine metres high, the twisted monument is one of the largest hanging sculptures ever made in Murano glass in living history.
Last and less “dramatic”
