What if we think of Venice as an open-air museum? How can we transform the transit of groups of tourists through the city into a physical experience that helps them to appreciate the many architectural and artistic details? Is it possible to give a choreographic sense to the guided tours? A group of scholars and tourism experts will take the artists of Dancing Museums. The Democracy of Beings along an itinerary through the places most visited by tourists, to imagine news ways of choreographing memorable experiences of this city and its artistic heritage. The visit to the new Ocean Space/TBA21- Academy, that fosters collaboration among artists, scientists, policy makers from climate-change hotspots, will offer the occasion to reflect on the near future of Venice.
