7 September 2021

Venice, September 6, 2021- A special opening with aperitif offers the chance to admire the exhibited works on the live notes of the duo Vendrasco-Tonolo. On Wednesday, September 8, from 7 pm, at the Querini Stampalia Foundation will take place an exclusive evening through music and art, titled “Paesaggi di carta e suoni”, a tribute to the city of Venice with its landscape, both real and transfigured, described by the ongoing exhibitions. The concert will take place in the auditorium and new musical suggestions will be proposed to evoke a sound transposal of the historical and contemporary landscape of Venice. Manuscripts from the Bibioteca Querini Stampalia, the nineteenth century’s “canzoni da battello”, echoing the Biennale Musica’ scores in pieces that, inspired by the Venetian musical history, will draw a “musical map” of the city. From 8 pm (until 10 pm) it will be possible to enjoy the evocative setting of the Carlo Scarpa back garden’, while sipping a drink after, or before, visiting the current exhibitions: “Venezia panoramica. La scoperta dell’orizzonte infinito'' edited by Giandomenico Romanelli and Pascaline Vatine. and “Un’evidenza fantascientifica. Luigi Ghirri, Andrea Zanzotto, Giuseppe Caccavale '' edited by Chiara Bertola and Andrea Cortellessa. The event is part of the activities organized to celebrate the 1600th anniversary from the foundation of the city of Venice.

Spaces are limited, Green Pass and advance booking are required: manifestazioni@querinistampalia.org.

Venezia panoramica” shows the largest “view of Venice” ever realized, the one painted in 1887 by the Venetian painter and decorator, Giovanni Biasin, which is exhibited for the first time after the recent conservative restoration that has recovered the beautiful original colors. An opportunity to reconstruct that fascinating journey, through almost sixty engravings and paintings, that starts from the tiny woodcut cartoons of the fifteenth century, almost entirely focused on St. Mark’s Square, and gradually widens to larger and larger views of Venice’s skyline, up to embrace the whole horizon.

Un’evidenza scientifica” is, on the other hand, the third act of the research program linked to the Luigi Ghirri Fund, which compares photography, painting and poetry, an enhancement opportunity given through the language of art. A trialogue: a visual artist like Giuseppe Caccavale and a great poet like Andrea Zanzotto, confront each other with the works of Luigi Ghirri, on the great topic of landscape. The language of photography, of poetry and painting compose an unpublished landscape, so unrecognizable and transformed to seem the landscape of a different world, a fantasy world.
