    Mrs Agata Brusegan will tell the evolution of Ca ‘di Dio starting from the first legacy of 1272, passing through the transformations of the late Middle Ages up to the rebirth of the mid-1500s, with the reconstruction of the entire complex by Jacopo Sansovino, to continue with the eighteenth century with the last important decorative intervention of the church commissioned to the painter Giuseppe Angeli. Together we will try to recognize the signs that history has indelibly imprinted on today’s Ca ‘di Dio.

    April 12th 2022 – h 3.00 pm

    Discovering the millenary history of Ca ‘di Dio and the Oratorio dei Crociferi among archival documents, stories, places and people.

    Fondazione Venezia
    Mrs. Laura di Rossi, speaker of the conference, art historian and consultant of the Venice Foundation, will guide us to discover the works of artists and architects who once decorated the places of assistance and charity, as in the past the custom of frescoing and embellishing them.
    Ca ‘di Dio holds countless treasures and hidden corners, magnificent witnesses of a millenary history, all to be discovered.
    The return of these assets to the community is essential both for their conservation and for their enhancement: the works rediscover the meaning of their realization because the art is incomplete without the enjoyment of those who observe it and enriches through it.
