The Stones of Venice: foundations and future
Saturday 28 February 2015, 5-6.30pm
Location: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE
Venice has captivated artists and writers for hundreds of years, but in a city whose literal foundations are under threat from tourism, this discussion asks what is the value of heritage, is it worth saving at any cost? And is there a future for Venice’s unique community away from the museums and palaces?
Join writer Polly Coles, environmental scientist and activist Jane da Mosto, founding partner of muf architecture/art Liza Fior, Venice in Peril Fund Chair Jonathan Keates and Theatrum Mundi Director Professor Richard Sennett at this year’s LSE Literary Festival for an exciting discussion.
This event forms part of the LSE Space for Thought Literary Festival 2015, which is taking place from Monday 23 – Saturday 28 February with the theme ‘Foundations’. All events are free to attend and open to all, with tickets available to book online from Tuesday 3 February.
