Lecturer: Nirvan Romell

The talk explores the causative connection
between the political, social and economical
history of this famous city and its arts. The
uniqueness of the city’s history and people are
reflected in the revolutionary and innovative
character of Venetian arts – both in positive
and negative ways. The lecture highlights, in
particular, the contribution that the Venetian
colonies made to the famous school of art.
Venice has been highly romanticised in the past
two centuries and the lecture tries to separate
facts from sentiment.
