Daily life in Renaissance Venice
Architectural decoration, interior furnishings, and textiles are just some of the materials that can be used to understand the daily life of Venetians during the Renaissance period. The aim of this walk is to reconstruct what it was like to live during this period. In covering these topics, the walk will touch upon wider issues of identity, sex, gender, and class in the Renaissance period. It will also allow to have a better understanding of how the city itself was developed and used by the Venetians during this time.
