Venice Biennale: from artist’s meetings at Caffe Florian into a prestigious international exhibition

The Venice Biennale was born by a resolution by the City Council on 19th April 1893, which proposed the founding of a “biennial national artistic exhibition” to celebrate the silver anniversary of King Umberto and Margherita of Savoy.
The pavilion which was to host the first exhibition was feverishly built in the public gardens in Castello.
Main idea was to transform the artists’ evening meeting at Caffe Florian into a prestigious international exhibition.

Now the Venice biennale is one of “the must go” places in the world for all the people why are somehow connected to art world. Here are some eye – catching snaps of the biennale taken in different times.

Enjoy,folks 🙂
