Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore

View on Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore (Saint George Island) in the Venetian Lagoon. It is located just east of La Giudecca. On the island is the church of Saint George (Basilica di San Giorgio Maggiore) designed by Andrea Palladio one of the greatest Renaissance architects. I visited the island last year november and went to see the exhibition on the work of Giovanni Battista Piranesi, the 18th century architect and printmaker. This exhibition took place in the adjacent Saint George Monastery and was organized by the CINI foundation (Fondazione CINI).

Uitzicht op Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore (Groot eiland van Sint Joris) in de Venetiaanse Lagune. Het ligt net ten oosten van het eiland La Giudecca. Op het eiland bevindt zich de Sint Joris kerk (Basilica di San Giorgio Maggiore) ontworpen door Andrea Palladio een van de grootste renaissance architecten. Ik bezocht het eiland vorig jaar voor een expositie over het werk van Giovanni Battista Piranesi, de 18e eeuwse architect en graficus. Deze expositie vond plaats in het nabij gelegen Sint Joris klooster en was georganiseerd door CINI stichting (Fondazione CINI).
