Our commitment to the territory and its culture, even at the regional level
AbanoRitz loves its territory and with it its cultural heritage that thrives in all its richness and uniqueness. Precisely for this reason it has always been on the forefront to make known the many initiatives of the Euganean Hills making use of the help of its partner the Euganean Hills Wine Road and promoting in particular Villa dei Vescovi in the middle of the Euganean Hills Regional Park, of which the hotel is a supporter as an FAI partner of the structure.
In the cultural sphere AbanoRitz every year supports and hosts the authors of Villeggendo, the Literary Festival in the Venetian Villas, which is responsible for promoting above all the beautiful villas of the Vicenza area, daughters of the great Palladio.
While at the regional level the hotel is a member of the Venetian Villas Consortium – Ville Venete For You which brings together the Venetian Villas for tourist activities. The villas are hotels with spa facilities such as AbanoRitz, museum facilities, castles, gardens, historic houses, restaurants. The Consortium offers the possibility of making cultural and eno-gastronomic itineraries, cycling routes, participating in entertainment and entertainment events, relaxing in the spa and much more. This year the Venetian Villas Consortium, through its new partner Top Contemporary Art – Best View Art Gallery, will give life to a major exhibition: the 1st Contemporary Art Biennale called “Arte in Villa”.
What is “Arte in Villa”?
A contemporary art biennale that takes place at the accommodation facilities and not, members of the Venetian Villas Consortium. It is a contemporary art exhibition spread from Venice to the Villas of the Brenta Riviera and the Venetian inland, Treviso and Padua. The event will take place from March 15th to May 31st and will give the opportunity to discover the 8 locations that have been chosen and which have joined the initiative and the numerous artists present who will exhibit works of painting, sculpture, photography and digital art.
The Venetian Villas Biennale uses the acronym BVV with which a new and interesting exhibition project is presented: from the prestigious Venetian palaces to the historic villas of the mainland up to AbanoRitz! The works of the artists involved will find a privileged showcase among the halls of these structures frequented by a careful international audience. External visitors will also be admitted with free entry from 10 am to 7 pm every day.
The entire review is curated by the art critic and historian Marco Dolfin, while the organization is “Best View Art Gallery – Artist Promotion 360” by Massimo Tegon.
An initiative that allows to promote the Villas to a new public niche, both as regards the artists who will pass to see their exhibited works, and to the visitors who will make the tour of the locations to follow the path of the exhibition.
For visitors, in fact, it will be a cultural journey, we could call it a sort of “Widespread Art” in which they will be able to admire at least 22 artworks in each location. AbanoRitz will host 26 between painting and small sculpture to be contemplated starting from the Hall spaces, then moving on to the Reading Room, the Fireplace Room, the TV Room, the first floor in the prestigious Mirror Hall and the upper floors up to the fourth.
