Enjoy a spectacular night of Italian art, food and culture to mark the final week of Canaletto’s Venice Revisited, our acclaimed exhibition at the National Maritime Museum.

Created in partnership with CinemaItaliaUK, the evening will begin with a private view of the exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, which brings together the Italian artist’s complete set of 24 Venetian views from the Woburn Abbey Collection.

After taking in Canaletto’s landscapes, head to the Queen’s House for a drinks reception with classic Italian treats.

To complete your cultural experience, make your way up to the Great Hall – prized for its geometric marble floor – for a special screening of Welcome Venice. Directed by Andrea Segre, this evocative film uncovers the lives of two fishermen brothers, whose livelihood is under threat from Venice’s rising tide of tourists.

Get ready for an unmissable night of Venetian delights.
