“Save Venice” Fundraising Campaign in the Netherlands

The Embassy of Italy in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Dutch Association Poorters van Venetië (https://poortersvanvenetie.nl) and the Stichting Nederlands Venetië Comité have launched the Red Venetië (Save Venice) campaign to collect funds for the restoration of the damage caused by the recent floods that affected the city of Venice, whose cultural heritage belongs to the whole humanity.

Two main fundraising events will be the highlights of the campaign.
On Friday January 17 2020, from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM, at the Italian Cultural Institute in Amsterdam, the Poorters van Venetië will host a buffet dinner and an evening seminar to discuss the current situation in Venice, possible solutions to the flood emergency and artistic projects carried out by the Poorters, with the participation of renowned Italian and Dutch speakers and an introduction by the Ambassador of Italy.

On Friday January 31 2020, from 7:00 PM, recorder player Inês d’Avena and harpsichordist Claudio Ribeiro will present at the Keizersgrachtkerk in Amsterdam their latest album, “Anonimo Venexian”, featuring world-premiere recordings of their recent baroque discoveries from Venetian archives. Among these findings is a new sonata attributed to Antonio Vivaldi. 

Registration to one or both the events is possible via the website www.redvenetie.nl.

Donations are also possible through the app https://www.doneeractie.nl/red-veneti-235/-40067?widget=1.

Proceeds from the campaign will be managed by the Poorters van Venetië, a cultural ANBI, and support restorations carried out by Italian conservators.
