Art History Classes by Alessandra Montalbetti.
The true voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but in opening new eyes.
Venice is a city where we may live, walk and breathe, but never find the time to pause. It takes time to notice the silent “wonders” always around us, keeping pace with our steps, Ruskin’s beloved “Stones of Venice”, intriguing presences in the city that Calvino called Esmeralda, where no line is straight, all are mellow zigzags that branch in meandering variants.
In 2017 we abandon the lecture room and set off on a voyage, Proust's “true voyage of discovery that consists not in seeking new lands, but in opening new eyes”, eyes ready to rediscover what, in our daily lives, we have overlooked … but not for long.
The classes will be repeated twice per day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. See participation form.
Booking available from Wednesday, May 31, 2017.
