sabato 17 luglio 2010 ... Festa del Redentore a Venezia

Topic: culture

La manifestazione è un incrocio di significati religiosi e folcloristici, infatti vuole essere un segno di ringraziamento per aver superato la tremenda pestilenza che si abbattè nel sedicesimo secolo in città, ed un occasione ideale per creare un magico clima di festa a Venezia, con tanto di cena e parata in barca in notturna, e fuochi d’artificio ad illuminare a giorno il Bacino di San Marco.

La biennale di Venezia edizione 2009

Topic: culture

La Biennale di Venezia

Since 1895 The Venice Biennale has for over a century been one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world. Ever since its foundation in 1895, it has been in the avant-garde, promoting new artistic trends and organising international events in contemporary arts. It is world-beating for the International Film Festival, for the International Art Exhibition and for the International Architecture Exhibition, and continues the great tradition of the Festival of Contemporary Music, the Theatre Festival, now flanked by the Festival of Contemporary Dance.

The origin

Headed by its mayor, Riccardo Selvatico, the Venetian City Council passed a resolution on 19th April 1893 to set up a biennial exhibition of Italian art, to be inaugurated on 22nd April 1894. However, the event took place in 1895, two years later than it had been planned. On 30th April, the 1st International Art Exhibition was inaugurated.

A must see. More information here or in the main site .
