La Biennale di Venezia

La Biennale di Venezia opened this week and already, there are some great articles and images on the web. So I thought I'd share a few links~

Venice in Ten Artworks

This year for the first time, the Vatican has a pavilion at La Biennale. Below is a photo from Flickr of the Patriarch of Venice at the Inaugurazione padiglione Santa Sede (Opening of the Holy See Pavilion).


I hope to resume regular blogging soon - hope everyone is having a nice spring.

PhotoHunt: Sculpture

An interesting modern sculpture in Venice. Its title is Il Vento e Il Sole (The Wind and the Sun), and the artist is Italian sculptor, Matteo Lo Greco.

This sculpture is right beside the church of San Fantin in sestiere San Marco.

A few more sculptures in the window of a gallery near the same church~

The most renowned outdoor sculpture in Venice is the 15th century Renaissance equestrian statue of Bartolomeo Colleoni in the campo in front of the church of SS. Giovanni e Paolo (the large brick building to the right) and
the Scuola Grande di San Marco (the white marble building which is now the hospital).


The sculpture's pedestal is a popular place for the pigeons to hang out~


Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend. :)
