Preserving Artistic Heritage: An Evening with Save Venice

A Patron Insider Event
Supported by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Toronto

Dr. Karine Tsoumis, curator of the exhibition Renaissance Venice: Life & Luxury at the Crossroads, will sit down with Christopher Apostle, Project Director at Save Venice, to discuss the work being done to restore and protect maiolica in Venice today.

About the Exhibition

Renaissance Venice was a multicultural metropolis where migration and mobility shaped the daily lives of its inhabitants. Its position at the crossroads of trade routes linking Europe to the Islamic World brought a continuous flow of commodities like pigments, spices, and luxury objects. In the homes of Venetians, these imported goods complemented locally-made products like maiolica, or tin-glazed earthenware. Renaissance Venice: Life and Luxury at the Crossroads recreates a sensory world of objects, from Chinese porcelain and Islamic metalware to Venetian textiles and glass. Learn more
