Descrizione

A free guided tour offered by BestVeniceGuides, an idea of PromoGuide Venezia in collaboration with the Polo Museale del Veneto and the Scuola di Musica Antica di Venezia.

During this tour we will explore the history of Giovanni Grimani and his family in the Counter Reformation period. Patriarch of Aquileia Giovanni Grimani was not only a leading churchman, but also an erudite collector of art and antiquities.

Our first stop will be the Church of San Francesco della Vigna, where the family chapel was located and where Giovanni chose to be buried, and where he commissioned Andrea Palladio to redesign the church façade.

We will then continue to the Grimani Palace near Campo Santa Maria Formosa. The Renaissance architecture, colourful frescoes, elegant stuccowork, classical bas-reliefs and gilding, as well as a room dedicated to his grandfather, Doge Antonio Grimani, will tell us about Giovanni’s taste and his controversial relationship with the powerful Roman Catholic Curia.

After the guided tour, you will be most welcome to attend a concert of ancient music arranged by the Scuola di Musica Antica di Venezia in the main hall of the Grimani Palace.
