Venice is once again uniquely at the forefront in responding to global change. The convergence of our pandemic, its attendant economic transformation, and the rapidly advancing change in our climate is propelling Venice to reinvent itself. This is a time of great uncertainty, opportunity, and excitement for La Serenissima.
We are thrilled to invite you to the first event in our new webinar series “Venice Rising.” Organized by Casa Muraro, Columbia’s Center for Venetian Studies, “Venice Rising” will offer a series of online lectures, interviews, and workshops on Venice’s transformations, past, present and future. Participants will join us from around the world and from across various disciplines.
