Inspiring Art Park at Belmond Hotel Cipriani Venice

Story By
Cita Arsita Farani

Marking the 58th Venice Biennale of Art, Belmond Hotel Cipriani reminiscences on its 60-year heritage of attracting world-renowned artists and creatives by transforming its grounds and dining spaces into a new art park and studio. From the mythological meaning of Igor Mitoraj’s bronze sculpture overlooking the lagoon and the marvel of Pablo Atchugarry’s marble figures placed in the gardens to the modern illustrations of Mauro Bergonzoli’s eighteenth-century Venice, the hotel perfectly embraces the complexities of Biennale’s 2019 theme “May You Live In Interesting Times”.

In partnership with the Contini Gallery, a famous Venetian collection of galleries, the work of four artists, Igor Mitoraj, Pablo Atchugarry, Julio Larraz and Enzo Fiore work has been thoughtfully curated and displayed around the hotel to inspire creativity and conversation.

Belmond Hotel Cipriani also offers the guests Alfresco Art Class, a series of individual or group painting lessons to learn ancient painting techniques in a modern context under the pergola of the Casanova Gardens. Guests can stroll out from the hotel to discover more at Guidecca Art District.
