Venice Biennale

Set aside three days, bring your camera and prepare body and soul to be filled with art in the distinctive streets of beautiful Venice, to prepare you for the Venice Biennale.

Since 1895, it has been one of the most prestigious exhibitions of contemporary art in the world, hosting over the years artists such as Klimt, Picasso and Mirò. This event is now part of the collective culture, and every time it changes the way we understand and make art. The main International Art Exhibition or Art Biennial is held every two years, and more exhibitions related to other disciplines have been added to it. Of these, one of the most famous, as well as the oldest in the world in its field, is the Venice International Film Festival, which every year awards the Leone d’Oro prize, one of the most coveted awards in the world, to the best films at an international level.

During the days of the art biennial, the city is filled with exhibitions and installations from all over the world, and the main venues are crowded with thousands of visitors. The Gardens of the Biennale are certainly one of the most evocative places, with installations dedicated to many nations. The Arsenal also gives its best, with spaces dedicated to Performance Arts such as dance and singing.

Therefore, we suggest you take a trip to the Venice Biennale in the near future, to find out in what ways cinema, art, dance, music, theatre and architecture can communicate with anyone who decides to discover and explore them.
