Save Venice Inc. and the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago are pleased to invite you for a lecture on restoring and preserving the incredibly vast Venetian art and architectural heritage. 

Art historian Frederick Ilchman and Melissa Conn, Director of the Venice office of Save Venice, will guide us through the different aspects of such a difficult endeavor which relies on the involvement of different kinds of knowledge and professional figures.


Frederick Ilchman, a specialist in the art of Venice, has been a curator at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, since 2001. His exhibitions include 'Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese: Rivals in Renaissance Venice' (2009) and 'Goya: Order and Disorder' (2014), which 'The Wall Street Journal' selected as one of the year’s best. He also is Chairman of Save Venice Inc.


Melissa Conn is the Director of the Venice office of Save Venice Inc., an American non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for the conservation of art and architecture in Venice, Italy . With twenty-eight years of experience in the field of Venetian art history and restoration, Ms. Conn oversees Save Venice conservation projects in Venice, and lectures in Italy and the United States on Save Venice’s activities.


Free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
