Latest German Center for Venetian Studies: 50th Anniversary
Ceremony for the 50th Anniversary of the German Center for Venetian Studies (May 6, 2022)
The German Center for Venetian Studies is an interdisciplinary institution which promotes projects and scholarly work on the history and culture of Venice and of the territories once under its control. The Center awards scholarships to artists and to young researchers whose projects have connections to Venice. As a well as a supporter of the anniversary ceremony, the Dr. Christiane Hackerodt Arts and Culture Foundation funds scholarships for visual artists associated with the Center, and will continue to do so until at least 2027.
The Center’s annual program includes international conferences, lectures, concerts, and other cultural events. It also organizes an annual interdisciplinary course of study. The Center’s reference library contains over 14,000 volumes on subjects connected to Venice, as well as a rich collection of offprints.
The German Center for Venetian Studies currently publishes three scholarly book series: Venetiana, Quaderni, and Studi.
