Venice, Enjoyable Art & History

Interactive itineraries to experience the power of art in its original context:
“palazzi”, churches, fraternities (Scuole), oratories. Many places in Venice haven’t changed a bit.

It’s fascinating to bring them to life by telling the stories of their users, of the past and of the present day (many are living heritage) and decoding their ‘sign language’: centuries of history haven’t corrupted the connections between a building and its surroundings yet.

You’ll get to know places like the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, the Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni, the Frari’s Church, the Church of Miracoli, the Church of San Pantalon,
the Church of San Giovanni Elemosinario, just to mention a few.

After that, you’ll never be the same.
