About the Event

Get ready for an amazing event at Palazzo Zeno in the beautiful city of Venice. It's going to be a memorable experience.

The Zeno family in collaboration with the association I Musici Patavini invites you to enter the splendid rooms of Palazzo Zeno in Venice to experience the great emotion of Italian opera.
You will be surrounded by candles and beams of coloured lights in the evocative atmosphere of one of the most beautiful palaces in Venice. During the concert, the rooms come to life, as if the ghosts of the past mingle among the guests, whispering ancient melodies and memories. Perhaps, within the walls of Palazzo Zeno, lies a still unsolved mystery, ready to be revealed only to those who immerse themselves in the enchantment of the evening.

Location


Located just a few steps from the Basilica dei Frari in the San Polo district, Palazzo Zeno was built at the end of the 14th century by Carlo Zeno, the 'Capitano da mar', the hero of the War of Chioggia between Venice and Genoa. The palace was later remodeled several times, with the most important and far‐reaching renovation being the work of architect Antonio Gasparri, who was commissioned by Alessandro Zeno, the Serenissima's ambassador to the court of King Louis XV in Versailles.
All the rooms of the palace are decorated with frescoes and stucco work by the most important artists of the time, such as Antonio Pellegrini, Jacopo Guarana, Abbondio Stazio and Amigoni.
The Zeno family has played an important role in Venetian history since the time of the Serenissima: One of them was Doge (Renier Zeno, 1253) and other descendants were ambassadors, senators and cardinals.

Program


Enveloped by the ancient walls of Palazzo Zeno, you will hear the most beautiful melodies of Italian opera, where the greatness of opera is combined with the timeless genius of Ennio Morricone's film music and Venetian and Neapolitan love romances.
The protagonists of the concert will be the performers of Venice Opera Concert with a trio of opera singers accompanied by an instrumental ensemble consisting of piano and string trio.

Practical Information

The concert lasts about one and a half hours. You will be welcomed with a Prosecco aperitif and a light, hearty buffet. Before the concert, you can visit the rooms of the palace where the Doge of Venice lived. With their marvelous mirrors, frescoes and paintings, these rooms still hold secrets and mysteries that will be told to you by the living voice of the descendants of the noble Zeno family during the visit to the noble floor of the palace, its portico and the magnificent garden.
