Architecture course in Venice
Italian with the history of architecture
The architecture course in Venice is aimed at all those who, in studying the Italian language, wish to combine an in-depth study of Venetian culture through the study of the city’s architectural/urban structure.
We will explain why the city was built on water and what the consequences were in its development over the centuries, from its establishment until today. During the course of architecture in Venice, we will talk about the development of the Venetian territorial fabric of the historical center, the lagoon and the mainland, with a brief reference to the singular topography of the lagoon city. We will analyze the scheme of a typical Venetian palace and some specific architectural examples, such as the Basilica of San Marco, the Palazzo Ducale, the Rialto bridge etc. In addition to the traveling architecture classes we will talk about some outstanding personalities, who have marked the Venetian architectural scene, including the 16th century immortals: Andrea Palladio and Jacopo Sansovino. The objective of the architecture course in Venice is to transmit not only historical and technical notions related to architecture, but to illustrate the correlation between the unique form of the city, its history, the ways of life and the characteristic territory in which the city has developed. The architecture course in Venice will be held by professional architects, who live and know every corner of our city very well, both from an architectural and a social point of view.
