Learn the history of Venice from a “bottom-up” perspective. Away from the rooms of the power (the Doge’s Palace, the Church and the square of St Mark ) one can experience the venues of the “Scuole”, organizations in which commoners could take decision-making positions. The Scuole were laymen’s brotherhoods, fraternities and guilds, whose premises were second to none in terms of artistic and architectural achievements.  Thanks to their fundamental charitable commitments they were a veritable social network.
