Rosalba Carriera, Giulia Lama, Marietta Robusti: Venetian women that today are considered as important personalities of Italian Art History.
This itinerary wants to present their life and work through the visit to the places where they lived and where their paintings are kept.
We will follow the traces of Rosalba Carriera, nowadays considered one of the main female painters of the world, who brought the pastel technique to its maximum achievements. We will explore the district of Dorsoduro, where she was born and lived, and admire her works at the Accademia Galleries or in Ca’ Rezzonico Palace.
Here we can stop, or you can decide to continue to Santa Maria Formosa, looking for Giulia Lama, and finally walk to the wonderful district of Madonna dell’Orto, where Marietta Robusti, the daughter of the great Jacopo Tintoretto, was born.
The complete itinerary about the woman Venetian painters lasts a full day or two halves day (about 6 hours), and it is an excellent occasion to visit some lovely places, churches, and museums that tourists do not so well know but where you can find the authentic soul of Venice.
However, it is possible just to have a brief tour focused on Rosalba Carriera, which lasts about 3 hours.
Participants: maximum of 20 people
The Women Venetian painters tour was created in collaboration with Dr. Nicoletta Consentino
