Discover the most prestigious painting collection in Venice with your kids

This activity is intended to stimulate the curiosity of children in relation to some of the most common symbols in medieval and Renaissance art: animals! With the help of some cards, children will be guided to discover the details of ancient paintings, and understand their meaning. The visit starts into the Gothic painting room, a show of gold and precious colors and continues in the rooms of the Renaissance, exhibiting works of paramount importance to understand the history of the city and of its most well-known artists: Giovanni Bellini, Vittore Carpaccio, Giorgione, Tiziano Vecellio, Jacopo Robusti called Tintoretto, Paolo Veronese. One can not fail to stop and look at the great works by Giambattista Tiepolo, perhaps the greatest rococo painter in Europe.

Why is Saint George on a dragon? What's a lizard doing on the table in the portrait by Lorenzo Lotto? Why is St. Mark the Evangelist depicted in the form of a winged lion? Why is there a dog in the large canvas by Veronese? Have you ever heard of the dragon of the seven heads of the Revelation book? Be careful not to step on a scorpion while you walk through the paintings by Carpaccio... In a playful way, children are invited to plunge into the world of ancient painting. Listening to stories, touting their imagination, they will learn to discover the magical world of art history.
