For more than three centuries, every year on the 21st of November, Venice has celebrated the Feast of St Mary of Health.
An event in the name of tradition and popular devotion, which finds its origins in the great plague that hit the North of Italy between 1630 and 1631, in an itinerary touching history, architecture and religion.
A narration about Venice and his history through archive documents and paintings of one of the most important families of the Serenissima: the Querini Stampalia.
A fascinating journey to discover the origins and the traditions of a celebration that has been lasting for centuries.
The activity, offered in Italian and English, is in collaboration with Ca' Foscari Alumni and Venezia è Unica.
The guided tour includes:
- Themed visit and display of unpublished documents
