Il terzo Registro delle Parti dell’archivio della Scuola Grande di San Rocco. Dott. Emanuela Brusegan, studiosa di lingua veneziana
At 17.30 in the Sala dell’Albergo the official launch will take place of the Memoirs of Don Sante Della Valentina, based on a manuscript by the courageous Chaplain of San Rocco, who succeeded, during the dark days of Venice’s occupation by French troops, in defending the Scuola di San Rocco against the enforced closure to which, along with all the other Scuole, it had been condemned.
If the Scuola Grande is still alive and functioning today, it is in large part thanks to him!
During a week, from September 8th to September 15th, by liking the post, every visitor to the Jaeger-LeCoultre Official Facebook page triggers a donation by the Maison towards the restoration of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
For over a decade, Jaeger-LeCoultre has forged strong ties with Venice based on a love of the arts and the conservation of cultural heritage. Not only is it a partner to the Mostra, Venice’s International Film Festival, it has also become patron of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco – a unique place which is close to the hearts of all Venetians – and has sponsored restoration work there since 2013.
