-- Italian Fest Exhibition --
Opens @ Library on September 1, 2015

A unique, Italian exhibition “EXPLORING VENICE AND THE VENETO” kicks off this year’s Italian Fest!  Don’t miss this rare opportunity to go “behind the scenes” in Venice - experiencing this fascinating city on the water.  You’ll marvel at Venice’s art and architecture and picturesque bridges over the canals.  You’ll see beautiful glassware from Murano and learn about gondolas and their gondoliers.  AND you’ll “experience” CARNIVALE - one of Italy’s biggest parties - and see (up close) ornate CARNEVALE MASKS and rare COMMEDIA DELL’ ARTE MASKS handmade by the renowned Renzo Antonello of Italy!   Then you’ll explore more of this diverse region of Veneto - seeing unique art from mountain villages, special purchases from open-air markets, and ancient cave drawings that will make you question!  You’ll learn why this special region in Italy attracts thousands of visitors -- and doesn’t disappoint.  Welcome to The Veneto!
 
This one-of-a-kind display is here for a limited time only!  Don’t miss it!  Curated by Annette Graebe and Sharon McAley.
