An elegant city, refined and romantic as Venice, never fails to amaze its visitors. Since a couple of years, a Brescian entrepreneur opened a house museum that is sweeping many: The House of Corto Maltese. Hugo Pratt, one of the best cartoonists in the history of Italian and international cartoons, was very close to the city of Venice. Pratt lived here most of his life and two of his books have ben set in Venice: The angel of the window of the East and the Fable of Venice. The house-museum is located very close to the house where he lived as a child, in the Rio Tera Biri in Cannaregio. To enter the house you have to pass a hidden garden that adapts well to a place of reflection. The house is furnished with period furniture prattiano, including the famous wicker chair where Pratt was often photographed. Visitors will have access to the material that the author includes sketches, sketches, original drawings, unpublished photographs from the archives Venetian and will participate in workshops and excursions.
The House of Corto Maltese is not intended as a museum in the classic sense, but as a place addictive and characterized by a playful component. For fans of the comic is a must-miss!
