Guide to the visit of the Naval Historical Museum, by volunteers of the Association, Venice 2009, pp. 62.

The Naval Historical Museum of the Navy is an institution full of precious memorabilia, which is considered among the most important European collections of historical maritime objects, continuing  since the days of the Republic of Venice until today. A comprehensive guide of all the museum was missing. We thought, therefore, to collect and transcribe, in a single publication, all the “talk-about” of our meritorious Volunteers during their visits.

The Stone Land Registry. The transfer of real estate between the end of the Republic and Napoleon. Venice insula of San Tomà, edited by Andrea Marchi, Caterina Marcolin, Elena Tessarolo and Lisa Vallotto, Venice [2010].

The Stone Land Registry of the Insula of San Tomà intends to offer to the reader, through the census and analysis of 18 coats of arms of aristocratic properties hanging on the facades of some buildings of the Insula, an overview of the presence of noble families and transfers of real estate between the fall of the Venetian Republic (1797) and the beginning of the Napoleonic government.

The stone land registry. The transfer  of real estate between the end of the Republic and Napoleon. Venice insula of San Polo, by Andrea Marchi and Lisa Vallotto, Venice 2011, pp. 109.

The Stone Land Registry of the Insula of San Polo, like the previous one, wishes to deepen knowledge on the changes of real estate property in the period between the end of the Republic and the early nineteenth century, based on the analysis of stone coats of arms. This second volume examines the Insula of San Polo and the boundaries with the Insula of San Tomà.

Walking around with Pulcinella. Illustrated Guide to the Museum of Ca’ Rezzonico, by Anna Forlati, Venice 2011, pp. 61.


It is the realization of  the Association project to introduce children to art. The illustrated guide will help many parents to enjoy the visit to Ca’ Rezzonico and will suggest them a culturally entertaining game that can be repeated anytime and anywhere with their children. Pulcinella comes out from the fresco of Ca’ Rezzonico to lead the children through the halls of the building helping to focus attention on strange objects with funny names that they are meeting and, in a joyful way, he invites them to “take possession” of the building.
