Music and musicians in Venice

Portrait of Antonio Vivaldi
Antonio Vivaldi
In Venice music is brilliant, omnipresent.

Venice is full of sounds, Venice is a song, a continuous musical refrain, punctuated by the chirping of bells, echoed from house to rio by the singing of gondoliers accompanied by the laughter of children.

The notes of the children of Venice, the masters, the musicians of Venice, the Vivaldi, Monteverdi and other great musicians and librettists that Venice has given us, still resonate throughout Venice, in the Scuole as well as in our souls.

And let's not forget Lorenzo Da Ponte, also a son of Venice and who wrote opera librettos for Salieri and Mozart, including that of Don Juan!

Venice Homeland of Music

All Venetians love music, love to listen to it, love to sing it.

You can feel it everywhere, here we love life, we love beauty, we love a party, and the music, while it may have the gravity of a Monteverdi, is also a party when you listen to a concerto by Vivaldi.

The entire history of Venice is linked to this love of art and music in particular.

Come with us into this world of song and sound, and discover the lives and works of those who made Venice one of the capitals of European music, if not the capital until the 18th century.
