Vivaldi View

Mounted inconspicuously underneath a window at the Church of the Pietà - Saint Mary of the Visitation, this granite plaque reveals a fascinating piece of Venice musical history where composer Antonio Vivaldi worked as concertmaster from 1703 to 1740.

Translated verbatim: In this place stood the musical chapel of the conservatory of the pieta where the genius of Antonio Vivaldi, then not fully understood worked as concertmaster from 1703 to 1740, giving Venice and the world the incomparable richness of his music of which "The Four Seasons" are the flower and the seal, its time has come.
