Full description

Stories, legends, Venetian women lives. This itinerary is dedicated to women artists, literates, musicians from the past and not only. It is another walk through centuries. We 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 we go and see the tomb of Caterina Cornaro, the queen of Cyprus. We cross together the Rialto bridge to stop in front of the Grimani Palace built by the architect Sammicheli, where lived Marina Morosini Grimani in luxury and then we go and see where Bianca Cappello lived before becoming the Grandduchess 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. We go together to the Frari to remember the musician Barbara Strozzi and then to mention Gaspara Stampa, Rosalba Carriera and Peggy Guggenheim we will finish nearby the Grand Canal.
