Venezia 1600

421-2021

Topics: 

According to a millennial tradition, March 25, 421 is commonly recognized as the date on which the City of Venice was founded, as evidenced in the manuscript of the Chronicon Altinate and, in more recent times, by Marin Sanudo who, describing the great Rialto fire of 1514 in his Diaries, writes: ".....Only the church of San Giacomo di Rialto, with its leaden roof, remained standing….For this was the first church built in Venice, begun on March 25, 421, as may be read in our chronicles…”
The year 2021 marks 1600 years from the foundation of Venice and the City will be celebrating its anniversary with an exciting program of events organized and promoted by local bodies and institutions, which will include exhibitions, museum and city tours, conferences and seminars.

The Venice Municipal Administration will be promoting and coordinating initiatives related to the event and, to this end, has set up a Steering Committee, composed of leading figures and representatives from public, academic, cultural, economic and social institutions with a view to involving all subjects present in the metropolitan area.
