ON THE VENETIAN BOATS – The Gondolino

gondolini-2010 Created and used exclusively for the Historical Regatta, the gondolino first raced in 1825. It was designed specifically to make the Regatta more competitive and exciting.
It is lighter and swifter than the gondola on which it is modelled. The current version measures10.5 metres from end to end, whilst its bottom is0.65 metres wide.

Art night Venice 2012

 

   Enjoy a free evening of art, music and entertainment asVenice’s most prominent arts and cultural institutions swing open their doors.

   A crescent moon, shaped unmistakably like the metal prow of a gondola immersed in a sea of indigo is the symbol chosen for Art Night Venice, scheduled for Saturday, June 23rd 2012.

   From sunset until late at night the whole city will become an open air show, and several events – of all sort of arts, including music, cinema, literature and poetry – will attract art lovers around the canals and along theGrand Canal, which will turn into a fascinating stage.

   Museums, galleries, foundations, public and private venues will swing open their doors and leave free entry to all who want to discover their secrets. Even the bookshops will open their spaces to visitors, and all the shops will stay open until late.

   It will also be a way to know the city from other points of view: under the starry sky of the lagoon city, you can explore the hiddenVeniceand lesser known works of art.

Green economy and sustainable development

The City of Venice participates in the event Green Night in the NorthEast, that involves several cities and districts of the metropolitan area of Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige and Friuli Venezia Giulia, on Saturday May 5th 2012.

From late afternoon and into the night, many cities will simultaneously go green when city squares, industrial plants and cultural venues will illuminate with green lights: 200,000 people are expected to give rise to the largest European event of this kind.

Debates and workshops, project presentations and products, artistic performances and exhibitions, tastings of organic products or km 0, will enlivenVeniceand the other cities in the Northeast, exploring the best sustainable experiences: clean technology and alternative energy, mobility and waste management, green architecture and design, smart city, agriculture, formation. Shops and cultural venues will be open throughout the night

ON THE VENETIAN BOATS – The Gondola

 

The Gondola
The Venetian boat par excellence, whose origin remains a mystery in spite of extensive research into the subject.
Once, gondolas were extravagantly decorated by their wealthy and titled owners, whose fondness for ostentation was curbed by a sumptuary edict dictating that henceforth they should all be painted black.
The rules for construction are extremely strict: the right side must be 24 millimetres narrower than the left (this assymetry is know as lai); the boat must measure 10.75 metres in length and have an internal breadth of 1.38 metres. The gondola is used exclusively for ferrying persons and for boat races. Eight different types of wood are used in its construction and it is made up of over 280 different parts. The only parts in metal are the characteristic “ferro” of the prow and the “risso” of the stern.
The “ferro” characterises the gondola’s prow and guarantees the boat’s longitudinal stability, acting as a counterbalance to the gondolier’s weight.
Popular tradition has it that the anterior “pettini” represent the six neighbourhoods of the city and the posterior one represents theisland ofGiudecca; the double “S” curve is the Grand Canal and the lunette, positioned under a stylised doge’s cap, isRialtoBridge.

The “Art Vaporetto” to discoverVenice

   One of the goals set by the present City Council of Venice is to foster policies aimed at attracting qualified tourism, that is, visitors interested in experiencing art in all its forms and in discovering Venice beyond its most famous highlights, such as St. Mark’s Square and Rialto Bridge. It is exactely in order to promote this kind of tourism that the City has decided to launch the “Art Vaporetto”, a new waterbus line which will connect the main cultural sites in town along the Grand Canal and St. Mark’s Basin. Visitors will receive on board multimedia information about the attractions to be seen and will be able to hop-on hop-off at any time to focus on their specific interests. The new service, to be run by the City’s public transport company Actv, is set to start on June 1st 2012.

     With the ‘Art Vaporetto’Venice especially chose to enrich its cultural offer for those who are curious to discover the City’s immense cultural heritage. The other very important outcome of this project is that we have been able, as a public administration, to create a network among the many cultural institutions in town. I’m absolutely confindent that this initiative will contribute to reinforce the nomination ofVenice with the NorthEst as European Capital of Culture 2019″.

Eight stops are planned:

  • Ferrovia Santa Lucia (Jewish Museum)
  • San Stae (Ca’ Pesaro, Palazzo Mocenigo, Prada Foundation, Oriental Art Museum)
  • Ca’ d’Oro (Franchetti Gallery at the Ca’ d’Oro)
  • S. Samuele (Palazzo Grassi, La Fenice Theatre)
  • Accademia (Accademia Galleries, Ca’Rezzonico, The Peggy Guggenheim Collection)
  • Salute (Punta della Dogana)
  • S. Marco Giardinetti (Doges’ Palace, Correr Museum, National Archaeological Museum, Marciana Library, Clock Tower, Palazza Grimani Museum)
  • S. Giorgio (Cini Foundation)

with the addition of Arsenale and Giardini in high season for visitors to the Biennale.

This important event is now being recalled – exactly 150 years later – with a major exhibition that traces the last century and a half of history, through a succession of nearly 200 works, including the most representative of the Museum’s collection, illustrative of the uniqueness of execution and the value of its creators. Together with these, works of the Biennial, unpublished creations of master glass-makers and factories, as well as new gifts that enrich the chapter of 20th century museum.
