EVENTS FOR THE INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION
21 Collateral Events will enrich the 14th International Exhibition, which will take place from June 7th 2014 for 6 months in Venice.
The Venice Biennale has released a list of 21 Collateral Events that will involve many prestigious sites around the city, alongside the official exhibitions at the Giardini and the Arsenale. Selected by Rem Koolhass and supported by non-profit national and international institutions, those events would be a great opportunity to explore a wide range of extra contributions from countries all over the world (especially China, with 5 projects) as well as local contributions.
Many events could be mentioned. For example, Moscow participates with the first retrospective in Italy of Mikhail Roginsky (Mikhail Roginsky. Through the Red Door), the father of Russian Pop Art, that will be held at Ca’ Foscari. The main purpose of this project is draw attention to the fundamental component of the art of painting that is based on advantage of its inherent notions: color, form and construction.
At Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi (Campo Sant’Agnese), Switzerland presents for the third year the Salon Suisse, an ambitious programme of talks and events focusing on questions around urban development in Switzerland and the increasing pressure of urbanization worldwide.
An opportunity to appreciate architecture conceived by different cultural backgrounds is Time Space Existence at Palazzo Bembo and Palazzo Mora. The exhibition presents architects from 6 continents, brought together in an extraordinary combination.
In other words, Venice Biennale is announced to be once again a real urban phenomenon, that would engage every corner of the city.

BACARI AND CICHETI
From: 01-01-2017 To: 31-12-2017
For a quick snack in Venice, people visit the bacari to taste the cicheti
For those who come to Venice, whether it be just passing through or staying for a few days, it is an absolute must to do the rounds of theBacari, the typical Venetian taverns where you can savour snacks and drink good wine, mostly standing, but sometimes even sitting. We’re talking about a quick snack that is satisfying and, above all, economic.
The term “Bàcaro” has controversial origins: some say it comes from Bacchus (god of wine), and others argue that it comes from the expression “far bàcara” which, in the local dialect, meant to celebrate noisily.
The bacari are meeting places frequented by many Venetians. Inside, you can taste the excellent “cicheti”, or finger food of all kinds: frombaccalà mantecato (purée of salted codfish) to meatballs, from sarde in saor (marinated sardines) to stir-fried baby vegetables, fromscampi to soppressa (a typical salami). All this, of course, accompanied by a glass of good wine: Prosecco, Raboso, Cabernet or Soave.
At the bar you may hear the term “ombra de vin“: a glass of wine in Venice is traditionally called “shadow” because wine merchants were accustomed to bargain under the bell tower and to keep the wine cool they followed the shade.
We cannot avoid mentioning some of our favourite bacari: “Muro” in Campo Bella Vienna at the Rialto, and nearby: “All’Arco“, “Ai do Mori” and “Ae do spade“, in a little side calle (street) of Ruga Rialto; “La Vedova” in front of the stop of Ca d’Oro; and “Cantina Ai Schiavi” (called Al Bottegon) in Fondamenta Nani, close to Zattere.
