A SPECIAL VISIT IN THE BASILICA DI SAN MARCO MUSEUM

Last Sunday we decided to have a visit at the Museum of Basilica di San Marco, and I have to confess you (it’s shameful, I know it 🙂 ) that it was my first time!

We went there at 13 am in order to avoid the crowd, and we were lucky…we entered immediately.

The first thing you see when you entered is this, and what can we say about it? It is amazing!!!

It is placed in the Campo dei Frari, in the Sestiere of San Polo and it is dedicated to Assumption of Maria.

If you have never been here I suggest to visit it… I always take my friends here and it has always a lot of success, not only for the dimensions, but for the art that it contains.

TEDxMESTRE: AN HOTBED OF IDEAS AND VALUES FOR VENETIAN TERRITORY

TEDxMestre is a project born in the February of 2019,  in order to bring to Venice the American format of TED conferences, through TEDx events: local events organised in an indipendent way but with the same spirit to tell ideas and values of the territorial community. In just six months, a group of local, young volunteers had been able to build the first edition, dedicated to the topic of ‘awakening’, and which had involved more than 700 people. The chosen location was the modern M9, the new museum in Mestre’s centre.

MY VENICE BY ELEONORA

How many times have we heard people say “Venice is the most beautiful city in the world”?eleonora

It seems a catchfrase, a conventional form of labeling such an uncommon place that for many tourists it completely loses its sense of city, taking on the appearance of an attraction. For those who, like me, were born and grew up among its streets, this phrase undertake a completely different meaning. Continue reading “MY VENICE BY ELEONORA”

GRAND BALL LA FENICE – VENICE CARNIVAL 2020

These are very strange days, everybody is at home and nobody can go out  because of a Virus that is influencing our life and our habits. But Grand Ball La Fenice is my last wonderful memory of a Venice full of energy!

I have to admit that I’ve never been at “La Fenice” before, so I was really thrilled when Atelier Tiepolo invited us at this amazing event.

VENETIAN LIBRARIES

Welcome to our new section dedicated to students, people who decided to move to Venice or tourists who might be interested in tasting what is like to study in the floating city!

We hope it could help someone out and, of course, give you advise and useful tips to survive, especially if you’re thinking to become a “Ca’ Foscarino” (we talked about Ca’ Foscari university previously).

So, what’s the best requirement for a student to have, except for well organized skills and a good motivation? No, not a great wallet for all the spritz that you could buy between a lesson and another (even if it’s still a nice feature), rather a quiet and calm space to study: that’s why, in this article, we are going to explore some Venetian Ca’ Foscari libraries.

STUDYING IN VENICE : CA’ FOSCARI UNIVERSITY

You may not know that Venice is not only the city of water or enchanting landscapes, but also one of the most recognised places for its supreme education: we are talking about Ca’ Foscari University, a guarantee since 1868 and, by now, perfectly incorporated with the citizen reality.

Ca’ Foscari Univesity was founded 150 years ago by three Italian politicians: Luigi Luzzati, Francesco Ferrara and Edoardo Deodati.

The first, and nowadays, more prestigious faculties were economy and languages: as a matter of fact, the university’s purpose was to form merchants and business owners, but after years and years of changes and renovations, many faculties and different subjects had been introduced.
