For the third consecutive year, Orsoni Venezia 1888 is supporting the “Schools & Mosaic” project promoted by the Municipality of Venice, Murano, and Burano, aimed at raising awareness among young people about the art of mosaic, which represents a very important cultural, material, and immaterial heritage of our city.

The “Schools & Mosaic” project aims to connect students with their own city, to establish a relationship of knowledge and dialogue with its artistic, historical, and cultural heritage. The goal is to contribute to the education of future citizens, helping them to love and respect the city they live in, after getting to know it, observe it, and study its roots.

In 2024, we celebrate the 700th anniversary of the death of Marco Polo, which occurred exactly on January 8, 1324. This important anniversary becomes an opportunity to retrace the journey of the great Venetian explorer, reliving its most significant stages. The “Journey with Marco Polo” Project is aimed at secondary school classes, which will be invited to produce, using the mosaic technique, at least one panel representing one of Marco Polo’s journey stages.

All panels will be arranged side by side to reconstruct the overall itinerary from Venice to China and will be exhibited on Sunday, May 12, 2024, from 10:30am to 6pm, at the Cloister of San Francesco della Vigna in Venice. Additionally, a brief caption of the subject created with the mosaic technique and an audio file of the same will be requested. At the end of the event, each student will be given a participation certificate.
