Bosch @ Palazzo Grimani

The exhibition of national collections at the Grimani Palace continues with three paintings by the most visionary artist in the history of art: Hieronymus Bosch. Following the great success of the exhibition dedicated to Giorgione’s famous works, which inaugurated the opening of the Grimani Palace as a permanent exhibition venue in Venice, three more absolute masterpieces that have been missing from the showcase scene for some time will be on display. It will be possible to admire the Visions of the Hereafter (1500 – 1503), the Tryptich of Saint Liberata (1505) and the Hermit Saints Tryptich (1510) by this celebrated Flemish painter (‘s Hertogenbosch, Holland 1450 – 1516), from the Doge’s Palace in Venice. This exhibition, wished and curated by Vittorio Sgarbi, falls within the project for enhancing the national collections hosted in Venice, as a tribute to the Dutch master, who sojourned in Venice in all probability between 1499 and 1502. The event is promoted by the Special Superintendence for State Museums and Galleries of the City of Venice, organised and produced by Arthemisia Group.

Ticket: Full € 9.00, Reduced € 7.00

Arriving in Venice by car

It is easy to reach Venice by car with the following motorway and road connections: A4 from Trieste and from Turin, A27 from Belluno, A13 from Bologna, and the state roads SS.309 Romea from the Adriatic Coast, SS.14 from Trieste, SS.13 from Treviso, SS.11 from Padua.
Venice is always clearly sign posted.

Once you have arrived near the lagoon, get on to the Ponte della Libertà – a long straight line with two lanes linking Venice to the mainland -follow the signs for Venice and you will arrive at Piazzale Roma.
Three are the parking areas at Piazzle Roma: the Autorimessa Comunale, the Garage San Marco and the small open air car park Sant’ Andrea.
One alternative is the large car park on the Tronchetto island and it is very easy to arrive at Venice.

Another possibility is leaving your car in Mestre – parking it in the small car parks before you reach the Ponte della Libertà or in those opposite to the railway station of Mestre and reach Venice by bus (Line 2) or by train (five minutes ride).

Campo Santo Stefano

“And in the fluently flapping hand of the native whom you stop to ask for directions, the eye, oblivious to his sputtering A destra, a sinistra, dritto, dritto, readily discerns a fish.” – Joseph Brodsky

What are the things to see:

Santo Stefano’s Church
is a large church at the northern end of the Campo. The magnificent portal by Bartolomeo Bon (XV century).
Works of art: Antonio Canova, Pietro Lombardo, Tullio Lombardo, Tintoretto, Paolo Veneziano, Bartolomeo Vivarini.

stands the monument to Niccolo Tommaseo, hero of the 1848 Uprising Against the Austrians, and the church of Santo Stefano faces onto the square, built Between the fourteenth and the fifteenth centuries.

Down the field, on the left is the “Corte Pisani” where stands the seventeenth-century facade of the Palazzo Pisani, since 1897 the seat of the Conservatorio Benedetto Marcello, the inside is full of courtyards, porches and stairways. On the same side of the field is closed by Palazzo Cavalli-Franchetti, where is the Istituto Veneto of Sciences, Arts and Letters, for conventions and exhibitions.

At San Marco quarter, one of the large squares in Venice to hold several café tables and children playing football match, Campo Santo Stefano is one of the city’s sunniest spots (it opens to the west), but is at its liveliest in the run-up to Christmas, when a small village of food and crafts stalls is set up here. Bullfights were held here regularly until 22th Febraury 1802, when the collapse of a bank of seats killed a number of spectators and provoked an absolute ban on such events.
