A Comedy of Art
Chioggia, also known as "Little Venice", is still today a theatrical living room in which the colors and lights of the lagoon act as a stage. The local community, mainly fishermen, is the protagonist. A brilliant comedy that of Goldoni (“Le Baruffe Chiozzotte”) which is set right here and is still staged today by the authentic local actors and its inhabitants.
Chioggia is one of the 40 islands of the Venetian lagoon. Its historic center has a particular charm, something magical and spectacular at the same time to discover. We will begin the visit with a walk along the Corso del Popolo overlooked by the baroque church of S. Andrea with the Romanesque bell tower, the church of S. Giacomo, the gothic oratory of S. Martino, one of the most characteristic and valuable buildings of the artistic heritage of the city and the Cathedral by Baldassare Longhena. The visit continues with the Canal Vena, the most picturesque point of the city overlooked by the Antico Granaio and the Pescheria, and ends at Ponte Vigo, an elegant bridge facing the lagoon.
