Venetian Heritage Biennale Gala Weekend


Venetian Heritage is pleased to invite you to the 2019 Biennale Gala Weekend, an exceptional series of events celebrating the 20th anniversary of Venetian Heritage, culminating in the grand Tiepolo Costume Ball at Palazzo Labia.

Founded in 1999 by Lawrence D. Lovett, Venetian Heritage’s mission is to support cultural projects through conservation, exhibitions, publications, conferences, and research, with the aim of generating awareness of the immense legacy of the artistic heritage of Venice, both in Italy, and in those areas once part of the Republic of Venice.

Funds raised from the Biennale Gala Weekend will go toward the restoration of Mauro Codussi’s monumental early-Renaissance staircase in the Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista and toward the restoration of Il Castigo dei Serpenti by Giambattista Tiepolo in the Gallerie dell’Accademia Museum, in memory of our founder Larry Lovett.
