Ca' Foscari Tour: the University of Venice opens its doors
April 16, 2009
Starting in 2009 a new service of guided tours of Ca' Foscari, the historical headquarters of the University of Venice that bears its name will be offered. The palace has enchanted for centuries famous people, renowned artists and visitors worldwide. Its scenographic setting "at the turn of the canal" was one of the reasons for which the doge Francesco Foscari bought this building in 1492 and then had it reconstructed following the architectural canons that made the palace a remarkable example of of venetian gothic.
Visitors can admire the external courtyards, the Gothic windows, the Aula Magna Mario Baratto designed by Carlo Scarpa, Sironi and De Luigi's frescos and the most recent findings of the last restoration, which used highly technological solutions to save the palace from the tidal ongoings of the water: it will be possible to discover the "treasures" of the palace, in an itinerary of art and history, with a guided tour given by properly trained staff.
