Venice Saved - Tribute to Simone Weil

Venice Saved - Tribute to Simone WeilFrom June 3rd to September 20th  the Magazzini del Sale (Punta della Dogana) hosts Venice Saved – Tribute to Simone Weil where a group of Italian women artists exhibit their paintings inspired by the unfinished work of the French philosopher and Christian mystic. The exhibition is one of the collateral event of the 53a Biennale of Art. 


In Weil’s works, beauty is a central theme. In her unfinished tragedy “Venice saved”, beauty represents salvation. Weil’s play is about a 17th century plot of the Spanish Empire to destroy the Venetian Republic by bribing key elements of Venice’s mercenary army to betray the city. The plot would have worked, but the night before it was to happen a key conspirator, Jaffier, having pity for Venice, thanks to her beauty, went to the city’s secret council of 10 and gave them all the info. 

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Simone Weil's birth some of  the most important women artists of XX century has realized works inspired by the book. The artists involved are:  Carol Rama - Maria Lai - Lidia Puglioli - Mirella Bentivoglio - Carla Accardi - Sara Campesan - Ida Barbarigo - Anna Torelli - Valentina Berardinone - Elisa Montessori - Gabriella Benedini - Giosetta Fioroni - Lucia Marcucci - Irma Blank - Renata Boero - Amalia Del Ponte - Cloti Ricciardi - Fausta Squatriti - Chiara Diamantini - Paola Gandolfi - Lucilla Catania - Marilena Sassi - Maria Bernardone - Liliana Moro - Monica Bonvicini - Sara Rossi - Lara Favaretto
