Venice, Infinitely Avante-Garde

Come on your own Grand Tour of Venice next Wednesday at Byron Theatre. Explore the historic city and its openness to the world, and to the future, through its art and its museums, its canals and its narrow streets, in the wonderful documentary, Venice: Infinitely Avante-Garde.

This tour of the city takes in masterpieces by Tiepolo, Canaletto, Rosalba Carriera and the intellectuals who fell in love with Venice: from Canova to Goethe, Byron to Walter Scott, to the great Hollywood stars drawn to its unique, yearly film festival. 

1600 years after its legendary foundation, Venice continues to be unique for its urban environment made of stone, earth and water, and for its history, which has entered the realm of legend.

Above all, Venice is unique for its identity, which combines contrasting blueprints: the charm of decadence, and the excitement of being on the cutting edge. Cosmopolitan from the outset, Venice has always been a city of commercial and cultural exchange with Eastern cultures and, taking its fragility into account, it has always had vision and been inspired by the future.

Venice: Infinitely Avante-Garde screens at Byron Theatre, Wednesday, 5 October at 2pm. Book at: byrontheatre.com or call 6685 6807.
