The Monumental Garden

of Valsanzibio

Visits during the winter
closing months

Shortly the 2019 Events’ Calendar
Many events and meeting not to be missed

From Monday 7th of January until Friday 22nd of February 2019, besides days of bad weather or other special cases, it will be possible to visit the Monumental Garden of Valsanzibio only by ‘calling’ the +39/340/0825844.  The reservation is mandatory both to verify in advance if the garden will be actually open to visit as well as to allow our personal to get organized (info@valsanzibiogiardino.it o +39/340/0825844). In any case, once You have arrived at the ticket entrance during the visiting times (see below), call the +39/340/0825844 and the personal in a few minutes will come to open the gates.

The allegorical path, inspired by Saint Gregorio Barbarigo and designed by Luigi Bernini, perfectly preserved after more than 350 years and such to make this place unique in the world, will be perfectly readable even if, due to possible night freezing, the fountains will not be open. Most of the Garden is made by century old evergreen trees, as well as the century old boxwoods labyrinth (always visible from the middle tower, but not walk able due to maintenance works). All of these, also in the winter months, give to this incredible historic-artistic-botanic site a great charm.

Opening hours during the closing winter months

from 11:00 to 17:00 (last entrance 16:00)

only by calling the +39/340/0825844

INFINE VI segnaliamo…

‘VALSANZIBIO’

Preview of the book

un opera scritta da Luigi Cerantola con fotografie di Renato D’Agostin, giovane fotografo veneziano che ha già esposto in prestigiose gallerie d’arte internazionali, tra cui Venezia, New York, Parigi. Alcuni sui scatti realizzati nel Giardino di Valsanzibio appaiono anche sulla facciata dell’antico Casino di caccia denominato Cà Martinengo (clicca sopra per conoscere Ca’ Martinengo).

Da VALSANZIBIO è stato tratto il Codice di Valsanzibio, un libro realizzato secondo tecniche monastiche antiche e composto di 26 grandi pagine (cm. 23,5 x 32) esposte in sequenza. In quest’opera i 24 Sonetti del poeta Luigi Cerantola, che prendono avvio dal Sonetto “Curioso viator che in questa parte” inciso sulla gradinata che dal Giardino di Valsanzibio immette al Piazzale delle Rivelazioni in fronte a Villa Barbarigo Pizzoni Ardemani (clicca La Scalinata del Sonetto), sono calligrafati su carta giapponese e tutte le 26 pagine sono dipinte da Alessio Mancino.

Il codice è in linea alla tradizione classica (vedi le Très Riches Heuresdu Duc de Berry del 1415 circa) che intendeva dar veste solenne e imperitura ad un testo calligrafandolo e miniandolo.
