Verona celebrates art… and wine!

Wine has always been a source of inspiration for artists around the world. Scottish novelist, Robert Louis Stevenson, said it loud and clear: “Wine is bottled poetry”.

Now, Verona honors this special relationship between wine and art with the exhibition ‘Arte e Vino‘, open to the public at il Palazzo della Gran Guardia until August 16th.

Visitors will discover how the enjoyment of wine has been depicted throughout the history of art by means of 184 masterpieces by both Italian and foreign artists, such as Titian, Rubens and Picasso.

And, being a celebration of wine, it can’t but end with a wine tasting session for the visitors, who will also enjoy some lovely views of L’Arena.

From Palazzo Victoria, we invite you to delight both your eyes and your palate in Verona!

The spirit of Paolo Veronese returns to Verona

He was one of Verona’s prodigal sons. His works inspired other artists like Rubens and Tiepolo and he was highly respected by Eugène Delacroix. His name was Paolo Cagliari, although he was best-known as Paolo Veronese. Now, il Palazzo della Gran Guardia is about to pay tribute to one of Verona’s finest citizens; from July 5th to October 5th the palace will host a ‘mostra’ of his works, paintings and drawings, following the lead of a monographic exhibition organized by the National Gallery of London.

He was a key figure within Venetian Mannerism and his artistic influences were Tintoretto and Titian. Religion was the topic he worked the most, but he went through it in a very creative way. He imagined Biblical scenes in colorful, festive ambiences, in order to express not only faith, but also the joy of life. Something that only a true master can do.

This year the heat won’t be the only thing summer brings back to Verona; the spirit of Paolo Veronese is coming home again. Palazzo Victoria, your boutique hotel in Verona, cannot but invite you to enjoy this lovely happening with us.
