Violins at "Venice Research"
Calle della Chiesa - S. Maria Mater Domini
Artemio Versari Collection
A beautiful and free exhibit of baroque musical instruments,
with chairs to sit down and enjoy the music of Vivaldi.
This exhibition is located
in the church of San Maurizio di Venezia.

San Marco Quarter
The church and the square of the same name, even though they are located only minutes from San Marco's Cathedral, make you feel as if to be back in Vivaldi's time, offering a quiet respite from the maddening crowds.

one of my favorite bloggers of all time,
"Grumpy Old Bookman",
brought this article (please click here) in the Easter Sunday edition of the Washington Post to my attention:
