Re: [BKARTS] Study in Venice

The Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia has organized a special workshop, the first of its kind in Venice:

The Art of Handwriting, Museo Correr Library, August 21-28, 2009

Monica Dengo, calligrapher
Monica Viero, Curator of the Museo Correr Library

For a whole week, students will have access to the historical material of the Museo Correr Library (manuscripts, correspondence, documents) and Monica Viero, the museum curator, will be there to help us during the whole course. The study will be both historical and contemporary, and prevalently practical. Student will be able to study and take notes directly from the historical sources.

The Museum and Library were founded in 1830 as the result of a bequest by the Venetian nobleman Teodoro Correr.The generosity of this original benefactor and numerous others – most from famous Venetian families
(amongst them one might mention Emmanuele Antonio Cicogna in 1865 and Pompeo Molmenti in the 1920s) -
means that the Library now houses a collection of great artistic and historic value. Covering more than seven centuries, the works include codices, minatures, incunabula, manuscripts, letters and printed volumes. Dedicating itself to the preservation of the works within its keeping, the Library is, in effect, a veritable museum of the written and printed word.
