New flowers will blossom in Venice between autumn and winter. Beginners or intermediate/advanced watercolourists will find in the masterful lessons of Adriana Basso, a teacher known throughout Europe, the possibility of realizing a dream, but also of participating in an unforgettable collective cultural and artistic experience.
They are not glass or beaded flowers, rather they are reminiscent of the floral damasks and velvets for which the Serenissima was famous. They are flowers painted on paper, watercolors that represent a delicate and sometimes evanescent world between art and science, botanical watercolors, which today more than ever fascinate and have many followers. Beginners or intermediate/advanced watercolourists will find in the masterful lessons of Adriana Basso, a teacher known throughout Europe, the possibility of realizing a dream, but also of participating in an unforgettable collective cultural and artistic experience, because it is contextualized in the elegant rooms of the Hotel Bel Sito of Venice, in Santa Maria del Giglio.
The Serafini Family, owner of the Hotel and of the nearby Palazzo Marin, to remember and honor the memory of those who gave birth to these places, Gino Serafini, passionate about contemporary art, in relation with the greatest artists who have stayed in the 900 in Venice, today it wants to continue to promote exhibitions, courses and cultural activities open to travelers but above all to the social fabric of the city.
