Every year for two days in September, Italy celebrates the European Heritage Days, in the frame of the programme promoted since 1991 by the European Council and the European Commission. During the European Heritage Days, doors are opened to thousands of monuments and sites (some of them normally closed to the public), allowing people to enjoy free visits, learn about their shared cultural heritage and become actively involved in the safeguarding of Europe’s heritage for present and future generations. Million people participate to the events.
Venetian State cultural places and local museums, as well as galleries, foundations and private associations with guided tours, special initiatives and openings of spaces normally closed to the public, participate to the EHD.
Saturday, September 22nd evening special openings are also included with admission at the nominal cost of 1 euro.
