About the Event
Discover Venice's musical and gastronomic heart on this unforgettable evening.
Taste the typical Venetian 'Cicchetti' in a Bàcaro (Venetian small local bar) and enjoy the traditional Venetian cuisine and a Venetian 'Ombra' or glass of local wine.
As soon as you have crossed the threshold of the 16th century Scuola Grande di San Teodoro, your journey back in time begins with a concert by I Musici Veneziani. The warm welcome by the 'moretti' and the 'major domo' (young servants and the butler) in their spectacular historical costumes will open this unforgettable evening in the festive atmosphere of the castle.
The Scuola Grande di San Teodoro is dedicated to the original patron saint of Venice. The school is one of a remarkable group — the six Great Schools of the city. The establishment of the school can be traced to 1258, although the current structure was built between 1579 and1613 by the great architect, Tommasi Contin. The facade is topped by five statues, representing four angels and San Teodoro, above the rich entrance portal. The sculptures were created by Bernardo Falcon during the second half of the 17th century.
I Musici Veneziani started performing their delightful concerts in the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro in the last few years of the 20th century. Many other artists have also performed in this famous School of Venice, including multiple performances of Vivaldi's 'The Four Seasons' by international classical stars.
