CASANOVA IN PLACE: A SYMPOSIUM IN VENICE 29th-30th JUNE 2019

Known as one of the eminent travelers of the 18th century, Giacomo Casanova visited much of Europe and wrote one of the era’s most important chronicles, as much a travel account as an autobiography. Exploring his interactions with people in the many cities he visited and on the roads reveals insights into both the man and his times. How do we, of other places and times, expand our understanding of his contributions? Join us in Venice, Casanova’s birthplace and heart-home, to explore the impact of place and time on Casanova’s identity, writing, and ideas.

This symposium aims to bring together anyone interested in the study of Casanova’s life and letters. A rich variety of participants will engender rich discussion and invite new ideas and perspectives. On offer will be events both academic as well as popular.

SLOWFOOD PROJECT- CE MUNICIPALITY OF VENICE 15th MAY 2019

On May 15th, the Municipality of Venice invited the local group of stakeholders of the Slowfood-CE project to participate in a meeting at the Don Orione Artigianelli Cultural Center: the day was aimed at improving the capacity of local actors to enhance the heritage cultural gastronomic of the territory, but above all it was aimed at sharing objectives and collecting ideas for the realization of the pilot action of Venice, that is a great city Festival on local products and gastronomy, whose first experimental edition will be held on 9 and 10 November 2019 . The meeting, convened and coordinated by both technical and institutional representatives of the Municipality of Venice (with the support of Slow Food experts) had a very positive outcome: about thirty stakeholders (producers, restaurateurs, associations, hotel schools, in addition to representatives of the Slow Food Condotte of Venice historic center and mainland) had the opportunity to exchange ideas and create synergies to think and realize together the first edition of this event. The Festival, provisionally named “Venice Food Days”, received official support from the Tourist Destination Management Organization, the body that the Municipality of Venice established to improve collaboration between public and private entities in order to promoting sustainable and quality tourism. Furthermore, this Festival can act as a driving force for private and public investments in the future, so that it can be sustainable even after the end of the project.
