Caffè Florian through the eyes of its artists:
35 years of the art event
"TEMPORANEA – The Possible Realities of Caffè Florian"

In 2020, Caffè Florian will celebrate its three hundreds’ anniversary of uninterrupted activity.
At the end of the 19th century, in the Senate Hall of the world’s oldest Caffè, the idea of the Biennale was born.
To remember this important connection, for more than thirty years, many artists have reinterpreted with their works and art installations the Rooms that hosted, among many others, Casanova and Byron.
A series of tableaux, with portraits and images of those artists and their works, are now exhibited in the Hall of Seasons, like an Art Gallery leading to the big screen telling the video-story of the Caffè Florian and contemporary art.
