CA’ REZZONICO, Active tours available in English:

A journey into  eighteenth-century venice. The extraordinary rooms of the palace, with the sumptuous furnishings and original period furniture, refined decoration, exquisite tapestries, and official portraits, offer a view of Venice when the city was still wealthy and powerful, carefree and joyous. But a careful examination of the works by the leading figures of the last great age of Venetian painting, such as Tiepolo, Canaletto, Longhi, the Guardis, will lay bare the flip side of that reality, showing
Venice on the brink of the long and slippery slope to modernity.

Interactive activity sheets, teaching units, audiovisual equipment, all tailored to the
type and age group of the users, will accompany the young visitors in this
particular journey of discovery.
