Start from the Rialto area, where the first woman graduated in the world from the University of Padua lived: her name was Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia. Then, go and see the tomb of Caterina Cornaro, the queen of Cyprus. Cross the Rialto bridge and stop in front of the Grimani Palace built by the architect Sammicheli, where lived Marina Morosini Grimani in luxury. After this, go and see where Bianca Cappello lived before becoming the Grand duchess of Tuscany. We will remember also simple Venetian women working in the market and I will also mention the Carampane and you will learn why this popular name is so famous today. Afterwards, go the Frari to remember the artists Barbara Strozzi , Gaspara Stampa, Rosalba Carriera and Peggy Guggenheim. We will finish nearby the Grand Canal.
