The NY Chapter of Save Venice, Inc. recently announced the details of its Fall/Winter 2005 lecture series. Here's the program:
#1. The Venetian Dilemma on Wednesday, September 21, 2005
A film directed and produced by Carole and Richard Rifkind examining the modern problems faced by an ancient city and its residents. A discussion will follow. [I saw this film on PBS and it's excellent. I'll be there that night.]
#2. Between Palazzo Barbaro and Palazzo Venier dei Leoni: Patrons, Artists, and Divas on Tuesday, October 18, 2005
Discover how women patrons, writers, artists, and divas shaped Venice’s cultural and social scene from the mid-19th century to the second half of the 20th century. The presentation includes rare film clips of Venice dating back to 1905.
#3. Return of the Fenice on Wednesday, November 30, 2005
A breathtaking film documenting the restoration of the Fenice Theater including footage of the fire, reconstruction of the building, and the recreation of the detailed interior elements.
