THE CRYPS OF VENICE

LE CRIPTE DI VENEZIA was conceived as an “immersive” work in the history and living culture of Venice. Sponsored by the Municipality of Venice, entirely dedicated to the extraordinary hypogeal places of worship that lie beneath numerous churches and basilicas in Venice, the volume, written by authoritative architects, intellectuals and scholars of the lagoon city, reconstructs the cult of the relics of the saints in churches from the 9th to the 13th century and deepens the history and state of conservation of crypts, painted underground tombs and centuries-old underground chapels, in a leap back to the Middle Ages. We at BORGOVERDE, with our logo linked to the city of Venice, are happy to promote this work that offers the public the opportunity to enter a surreal dimension to rediscover Venice through a key to reading that enhances unprecedented perceptions of the value of its art. and culture.

BORGOVERDE, sensitive to actions to safeguard the historical heritage, always recognizes the common historical-artistic-cultural past as a testimony to be protected in order to favor the passage to future generations of the values and traditions of a people and its territory.
